CHIP FOOSE ROLLS INTO DOWNTOWN DISNEY ORLANDO FOR CAR MASTERS WEEKEND
June 12, 2014

Chip Foose is returning to Downtown Disney Orlando and the Magic Kingdom for the fun-filled Car Masters Weekend Event.  Now an annual tradition on Father's Day Weekend, Chip is coming in to town with 2 unique Foose rides and custom artwork created specifically for the event.  If you're searching for a cool way to spend some time with your Dad, there's no better place for a car lover to be.

There's a host of activities for all ages; Disney Character Meet 'n Greets, a Downtown Disney Car Show and Special Celebrity Appearances.  The event runs June 14th - June 15th and Chip will be on hand both days.  He'll be doing several Chat Shows and Merchandise Autograph Sessions, even a Drawing Lesson.

As has been his custom the last couple years, Chip created a signature piece of art for the event.  His original Car Masters Weekend oil painting will be on display and available for purchase with select prints are also available.  The Disney Merchandise team has used the painting as inspiration on several pieces, including apparel, phone covers and magnets.  Check out the Disney Parks Blog for a preview of these items: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/06/new-merchandise-rides-into-downtown-disney-west-side-for-car-masters-weekend-on-june-14-15-2014-2/

3M, our devoted sponsor, makes everything run smoothly in the Foose Design shop. We use their abrasives, sanding applications, paint spray equipment, masking systems, adhesives, coatings and sealants. We wouldn't be able to get a car done without them!

In January, Chip traveled to Norway and Sweden where he met the local 3M teams. He had a variety of customer events, product demonstrations and conferences. In February, Chip was in Puerto Rico for a 3M event hosted at the Museum of Transportation. During his 2 days there, he sat down with a number of body shops and 3M employees, took part in local interviews and did quite a few drawing exhibitions.
 
 
Chip will have a number of upcoming international appearances in 2014. As we get closer to the events we'll release all the details, including some of the fun promotions the various 3M affiliates are running.
