INDIANAPOLIS, IND., June 12, 2006 – Carrier Corporation's commitment to enhancing the lives of people everywhere goes beyond heating and air conditioning consumers' homes. Carrier continues to exercise its social responsibility by giving back to the community through community service, donations, and sponsorships. This year Carrier is the presenting sponsor of a Forefront exhibition at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and of the new Meerkat Exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo.
"Carrier Corporation is thrilled to support both the Forefront exhibit at the IMA and the new Meerkat Exhibit at the zoo," said Halsey Cook, president of Carrier Residential and Light Commercial. "These sponsorships allow us to support our local community while being a business leader in Indianapolis."
The new Forefront exhibit at the IMA was created by world renowned, contemporary artist, Amy Cutler. Cutler's exhibit, which debuted Thursday, March 9, is the first one to be sponsored by Carrier. More than 50 of Cutler's works can be viewed in the McCormack Forefront Galleries on the museum's third floor now through June 4.
"Carrier believes in being a leader in everything, not just the heating and cooling industry," said Johnny Johnson, Carrier Residential Brand Manager. "Now we can become a leader in presenting contemporary art to our community."
Carrier also has partnered with the Indianapolis Zoo to sponsor the new Meerkat Exhibit, which opened May 20. This exhibit is a stimulation of an African environment, and is located in the Deserts Biome of the zoo. The exhibit gives visitors an up-close view of these furry, mongoose-type animals, and includes sound to enhance the visitors' experience. Carrier is also supplying the HVAC equipment for this exhibit.
Promoting community event sponsorship is just one way Carrier enriches the lives of others. "At Carrier we believe that success is not only measured by the products we sell, but also by our commitment to being an influential community leader," said Cook.
