As Flag Day is celebrated June 14, we remember how important the U.S. flag has been to many of our One Of A Kind recipients. And what a beautiful creation it is, offering a flowing, meaningful design element for Artist Lawrence Romorini to incorporate into his One Of A Kind 3-dimensional collages.

Congressman Jack Kemp’s 3-dimensional commemorative collage was the very first to include actual flags to symbolize his strong patriotism and service to his country. Over 25 years later, Jack Kemp’s tribute remains an all-time favorite for many who view samples of One Of A Kind artwork. (more…)
