INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES
The Museum can be an exciting classroom to learn about history, language arts, design and more. Teachers and group leaders have used the Museum to create their own lesson plans, reading lists, tours, art projects and scavenger hunts. Programs seem best suited for students ages 10 and up.
Foundation for the Advancement of the Sign Industry
The Foundation for the Advancement of the Sign Industry (FASI) was founded in 2016 by Wade Swormstedt, former editor of Signs of the Times, to support the on-premise sign industry and serve as a liaison for united efforts by other industry-related organizations and publications. Upon Mr. Wade Swormstedt’s retirement in December 2018, Bill Dundas succeeded Mr. Wade Swormstedt as Executive Director. Mr. Dundas has an extensive sign-industry background, in addition to serving as the former Technical Editor of Signs of the Times magazine and, more recently, as Director of Technical & Regulatory Affairs for the International Sign Association (ISA). The FASI website www.signreference.org provides the latest industry-related news and maintains an online archive of relevant, out-of-print publications. FASI also supports the efforts of academic institutions and other groups conducting sign-related research. Additionally, the Foundation has developed a scholarship program to support students pursuing research in disciplines related to signage. Most importantly, FASI provides educational resources, technical knowledge and advocacy support for sign professionals.
