Farmington Hills, Mich. – July 31, 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: the Royal Oak Downtown Development Authority (DDA); Luca Mariano Bourbon and Whiskey; and Ann Arbor Art Fair. The announcement was made today by Marx Layne President Michael Layne.
“We’re pleased to represent the Royal Oak DDA, Luca Mariano and the Ann Arbor Art Fair.” said Layne. “The DDA has been at the forefront of economic growth and revitalization in Downtown Royal Oak. Luca Mariano is an emerging distillery with a full line of top-notch bourbons and rye whiskeys. The Ann Arbor Art Fair is the largest juried art fair in the nation, attracting half a million attendees annually.”
The Royal Oak Downtown Development Authority promotes economic growth and revitalization in Downtown Royal Oak by improving and maintaining a solid and user-friendly infrastructure, marketing Downtown Royal Oak to consumers and businesses, and encouraging preservation of Royal Oak's downtown.
Francesco S. Viola, the owner of Luca Mariano, began distilling as a hobby in his garage in 2010. Francesco’s grandfather was a man named Mariano Viola. His dream was for his family to build a business and create a legacy in the United States. Mariano taught Francesco many skills including gardening, making pasta and wine, and distilling brandy and whiskey. In honor of his grandfather, Francesco created recipes for Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey that are the foundation of Luca Mariano Distillery. The company is named after Francesco’s son.

Now in its 60th year, the Ann Arbor Art Fair is the 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).
