Agency Chosen to Promote Selection of Studio’s Presidential Inaugural Medal Design and Arts Education Group’s School Programs

Carmel, New York (January 20, 2009) – Young Audiences New York (YANY), a nationally recognized provider of arts education programming throughout the New York City public school system, and Marc Mellon Studios (Mellon), an internationally renowned creator of bronze sculpture, have selected Winuk Communications, Inc. (Winuk) to provide public relations services to their organizations.

A design created and submitted by Mellon Studios was recently selected by the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) to be the “Official 2009 Presidential Inaugural Medal,” honoring President-elect Barack Obama. For the studio and its founder, sculptor Marc Mellon, the agency is managing national media relations and providing strategic marketing counsel about the competitive selection of the design and the availability of the historic medal for purchase. All sales of the bronze medal, and other official commemoratives sold through PIC www.pic2009.org, help raise funds for the inaugural events planned for January 20, 2009, in Washington, DC.

Mr. Mellon is world renowned for his many works in bronze, including busts of luminaries such as Pope John Paul II, President George H.W. Bush and entertainer Tony Bennett, as well as for numerous sports bronzes, including the MVP trophies awarded annually by the National Basketball Association and the Women’s National Basketball Association. www.marcmellon.com

In advance of the gala, the agency is publicizing site visits by YANY’s 2009 honorees to schools benefiting from YANY programming. Honorees include Emmy-Award winning actor Julianna Margulies and Rino Scanzoni, chief investment officer, GroupM North America, and chairman, Mediaedge:cia North America, in recognition of their support of arts education in the NYC school system.
