Museum catalog takes silver in competition

April 01, 2007

The Washington County Museum of Fine Arts 75th anniversary exhibition catalog, Our Fondest Dreams and Hopes, has won the Silver Medal ADDY Award in the 2007 Greater Frederick Advertising Federation (GFAF) ADDY Award Competition.

The catalogue, which kicked off the museum's anniversary year beginning in September 2006, was designed by Lori Jenkins of Hagerstown Bookbinding and Printing Inc.

"It was the first book we had created and published in decades," museum Director Joe Ruzicka said in a prepared release. "It included an overview of our 75 years, our collecting activity in Old Master paintings, and a history of the building. We also compiled, for the first time, a complete listing of all exhibitions here, all employees, and all trustees."

Jenkins was the designer/art director for the project, which was directed by Ruzicka and coordinated by the museum's Meg Dameron. HBP printed 1,000 copies of the book. They are available for purchase at the museum's shop.

The publication was made possible by an appropriation from the Washington County Commissioners and a generous discount in printing costs by HBP, Ruzicka said.

The GFAF ADDY competition is the first of a three-tiered national competition. The local winners proceed to a regional competition, and those winners proceed to the national finals. The Silver Medal Award recognizes an outstanding industry leader in the community.

The ADDY Awards are the world's largest advertising competition, with more than 60,000 entries annually.
