The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials unveiled One Of A Kind 3-dimensional art by Lawrence Romorini at their Washington Briefing Congressional Reception in Washington, D.C. to showcase their 100th anniversary story.
The retrospective art, which will be permanently installed in their Washington D.C. headquarters, chronicles AASHTO’s history, leaders, mission and accomplishments as “The Voice of Transportation.” Miniatures of all the modes of transportation, along with tools of the industry—asphalt, rebar, gravel, reflective markers, a vintage caliper–provide a fascinating texture and authenticity in the art.
AASHTO’s artwork features scores of photographs, publications and 3D objects spanning their history from the very beginning. A series of maps highlight the progress of our nation’s transportation infrastructure and lead the eye to a 3-dimensional AASHTO 100th Anniversary logo, created of aluminum and Plexiglas. The octagon shape of the art echoes this logo, with the brushed aluminum providing an industrial look. Photoengraved in the border are logos from each of the 50 states’ Departments of Transportation.
