DUBLIN, Ohio— (Nov. 5, 2008) Voters may be reeling from the recent barrage of campaign ads and candidate visits, but there’s still one important vote to cast before Nov. 30. Dublin Arts Council (DAC) is asking the community to vote for their favorite Titration2: Park Fiction artwork from Dublin Arts Council’s latest on-loan outdoor sculpture exhibition. Dublin Arts Council plans to purchase at least one of the sculptures to remain in Dublin as a gift to the city. The selection will be announced at the Dec. 8 Dublin City Council meeting. “By involving residents and visitors in selecting a sculpture, we are truly engaging the community in an aesthetic response and appreciation of the role of art in our daily lives,” says DAC Executive Director David S. Guion. Park Fiction is brought to life through four groupings, each ranging in size from three to more than 50 sculptural elements. The Park Fiction theme illustrates the whimsy and human connection to the outdoor recreational spaces in our midst. The exhibition remains on view in Dublin’s Coffman Park, 5200 Emerald Parkway in Dublin, through September 2009. Ballot boxes have been placed at five Dublin locations: > Dublin Arts Center, 7125 Riverside Dr., > Dublin Community Recreation Center, 5600 Post Rd., > Dublin Municipal Building, 5200 Emerald Parkway, > Dublin Convention & Visitors Bureau Visitors Center, 9 S. High St. > Dublin Branch Library, 75 N. High St. DAC will also be collecting ballots via an online poll at www.dublinarts.org. For more information about the Park Fiction sculptures and artists, or any of Dublin Arts Council’s classes, programs, exhibitions and events, call (614) 889-7444 or visit www.dublinarts.org. Dublin Arts Council (DAC), now in its 25th anniversary year, is located at 7125 Riverside Dr. in Dublin, Ohio. Hours are Tues., 10am-7pm; Wed./Thurs./Fri., 10am–5pm; and Sat., 11am-2pm. DAC is supported in part by the City of Dublin’s Hotel/Motel tax endowment and the Ohio Arts Council. DAC engages the community, cultivates creativity and fosters life-long learning through the arts.
