January 20 is Inauguration Day, so let’s look back at the medal made for Theodore Roosevelt when he was elected in 1904. He gave the commission to sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens—who he’d met back in the 1890s—after he rejected the standard, unmemorable medal typically produced by the United States Mint.
Saint-Gaudens's results shattered precedent. The piece was modern in all senses of the word. There was no attempt to beautify or romanticize the President's head on the obverse, yet the image clearly conveyed vision and power.
Habemus nova Companhia das Agulhas! Esperamos por si para a inauguração, na próxima sexta-feira, dia 25, a partir das 16h.
Agora, ficamos na Rua Cardeal Mercier, nº 23B, em Lisboa, mesmo em frente ao Mercado do Bairro de Santos, junto à Praça de Espanha. :)
.........excited to announce that today marks the beginning, the #inaugurationday if-you-will, for my Wife’s and my newest advocacy and philanthropy property proudly coming out of @_thepavilion.
Please join us for the next thirty days as we launch and continuously promote our first Annual “Lights Out To Illiteracy” fundraising program, in benefit of the Renton Area Youth & Family Services.
Focusing on the reading component of Illiteracy’s anatomy, from May 21st through June 15th, we will be collecting new & lightly used books down at the @diecutstickersdotcom facility, located in Tukwila, Wa. with collection* hours being from 8:30 am - 5:00pm PST, Mon - Fri.
Illiteracy is a devastating and pervasive social issue that affects everyone; please choose to play a part in making certain that adequate resources are made available to those in our community whom have increased barriers to general access to both fiction and non-fiction literature.
Again, I welcome you all to join us from May 21st through June 15th, as we lovingly work towards turning out the lights on illiteracy & brightening the futures of our fellow Community Members.
