At the American Alliance of Museums convention in 2016 I met Kim Findley, Director of the Putnam Museum. She saw the ONE by ONE Community Portrait™ as a great way to kick off their 150th anniversary the following January. Since they were a history museum she added the idea of asking people to bring an item that was of historical significance to them.
“The images are still up on our walls two years later. They are so popular that we can’t take them down!”
