The Rio Olympics bring back memories of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, where USA TODAY presented One Of A Kind art to President Jimmy Carter and wife Rosalynn. What an exciting and inspiring commission! The artwork commemorates President Carter’s dedication to promoting peace and understanding worldwide since leaving The White House. USA TODAY Publisher Tom Curley unveiled the art, which still hangs in the Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta, Georgia—20 years later. (more…)

Lawrence Romorini celebrates the 30th anniversary of his One Of A Kind Art Studio visually—looking back on a portfolio of over 2,500 commissions, including Marriott, Oprah Winfrey, Johns Hopkins and ESPN, and selecting 30 three-dimensional collages that represent his life’s work of commemorating great American stories, both corporate and personal. It’s been an amazing journey for this small, independent art studio, located in Silver Spring, Maryland.
It’s hard to believe that One Of A Kind Art Studio has now been creating our signature brand of 3-dimensional commemorative artwork for 30 years. The time has flown by. The studio began working out of the home of Founders Lawrence Romorini and Donna Rome, with USA Today’s 5th anniversary as the first corporate commission. The studio relocated in 1990 to resurgent Silver Spring, MD, just minutes from Washington, D.C Since then, over 1,100 custom works of art have been created for clients large and small (see the latest).
Looking back to 1985, it’s fun to reflect on some of the amazing events that happened that founding year, and our own connection to many of them. (more…)
