Farmington Hills, Mich. – Feb. 12, 2019 – Marx Layne & Company, a full-service public relations, marketing and digital media agency, was selected as the agency of record for three new clients: Ann Arbor Art Fair; CARE of Southeastern Michigan; and River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation. The announcement was made today by Marx Layne President Michael Layne.

“We’re excited to represent our new clients and their impressive endeavors,” said Layne. “Ann Arbor Art Fair is the largest juried art fair in the nation attracting half a million attendees annually. CARE of Southeastern Michigan is a nonprofit providing important services to vulnerable populations. These are exciting times for the River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation with the Park’s major expansion efforts. We’re proud to leverage our deep expertise and insight in media relations and digital media to promote and support these wonderful organizations.”

Now in its 60th year, the Ann Arbor Art Fair is largest juried art fair in the country. It is comprised of four independently juried, nonprofit art fairs that run consecutively: the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original (60 years); the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair (50 years); the South University Art Fair (20 years); and the State Street Art Fair (52 years).This year, the Ann Arbor Art Fair will be held Thurs., July 18 through Sun., July 21 with a footprint spanning 30 city blocks in downtown Ann Arbor.

CARE of Southeastern Michigan’s mission is to strengthen the resiliency of people and their communities through prevention, education and services that improve the quality of life. As Michigan battles the opioid crisis, the nonprofit’s services and programs are crucial.

River Raisin National Battlefield Park Foundation unveiled its long-term master plan — the River Raisin Heritage Corridor —  this past summer, which will bring a national tourist destination to southeast Michigan.

Founded in 1987, Marx Layne & Company is a full-service agency providing public relations, media relations, media training, crisis communications, social media, online content and digital marketing, web development, graphic design and special events to industry leading organizations throughout the country.
