Instant Callers, a relative newcomer to the 150 year old Gaslamp Quarter of historic downtown San Diego, has pledged sponsorship of a fiberglass rabbit sculpture for the Gaslamp Quarter’s Public Art Installation “Rabbitville”.
San Diego, California, United States – May 31, 2017 /MarketersMedia/ —
Instant Callers, along with Coca-Cola, Ghirardelli, and District 3 City Councilman Chris Ward’s office, have each sponsored one of 15 fiberglass rabbit sculptures that will be used to memorialize the 150th Anniversary of downtown San Diego’s founding settlement. Back in 1867, this settlement was affectionately referred to as “Rabbitville”, due to the preponderance of rabbits in the area, but it is now known as the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego.
The Gaslamp Quarter Association announced the launch of this year-long celebration earlier this year to commemorate the 150th Anniversary of their National Historic District. The celebration will include several special events and a public art installation of the 15 rabbits, each uniquely decorated by a different commissioned artist, to memorialize the occasion.
The Honorable Kevin L. Faulconer, Mayor, City of San Diego proclaimed May 24th the official 150th Anniversary of the Gaslamp Quarter. “It is remarkable that in only a century and a half we were able to grow into the commercial core of America’s eighth largest city,” says, Michael Trimble, Executive Director of the Gaslamp Quarter Association. The Gaslamp Quarter Association is working in conjunction with the Downtown San Diego Partnership Clean and Safe program to make this unique public art installation possible.
Having recently selected the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown San Diego as the city for their national headquarters, President of Instant Callers, John Ramirez was quoted as saying, “At Instant Callers, we felt it was important to support such a historic occasion in order to become more connected within the community in which we live, work, and play.”
Instant Callers has seen overwhelming support since dedicating their sculpture to the very businesses that make up the vibrant and thriving Gaslamp Quarter community. Committing significant resources to the effort, Instant Callers has begun collecting business cards, mementos, and memorabilia from businesses throughout the Gaslamp Quarter, while working with managers and owners alike to develop campaigns aimed at driving new business to the district.
Instant Callers is eager to see the other corporations, community groups, merchants or even private citizens sponsor a rabbit in order to help raise funds for a proposed capital improvement project to re-light Fifth Avenue.
The Gaslamp Quarter extends from Broadway to Harbor Drive, and from 4th to 6th Avenue, covering 16½ blocks. It includes 94 historic buildings, most of which were constructed in the Victorian Era, and are still in use with active tenants including businesses, merchants, restaurants, shops and nightclubs.
