SIGN MUSEUM NEWS Tod Swormstedt is the president/founder of the American Sign Museum (Cincinnati). By Tod Swormstedt Online Auction Raises $20,000 It greatly assists the museum’s growing operating budget. T heannual online auction returned American Sign Museum’s third to the format of its first event by closing bidding on the final day of the Intl. Sign Assn. Sign Expo, held April 3-6 in Las Vegas. This allowed show attendees to bid onsite at the museum’s booth in the ISA exhibit hall. The museum was unable to exhibit at last year’s ISA show in Orlando because of construction at its new home. This year’s auction grossed more than $20,000 for the museum’s operating budget, thanks to 43 donations of goods and services from 26 different product manufacturers, distributors, publishers and associations. Several “firsts” registered for this auction, including two different offers of dental-care services and art classes targeted to local Cincinnati families. Firsttime donors included 3M’s Commercial Graphics Div.; author and photo by Darek Johnson photographer Steve Cummings; and Montroy Sign and Graphics Supply. The museum thanks the following for promotional support: Dee Scott, executive director of the Midwest Sign Assn.; Nancy Maren, executive director at the United States Sign Council; Bill McGlade, exhibit sales manager at the ISA; Tom McIltrot at SignCraft Publishing; Jeff Russ and Wade Swormstedt at Signs of the Times, and Jeff Wooten at Sign Builder Illustrated; among others. 2013 Online Auction Donors • 3M Commercial Graphics Div.
