SILVER SPRING, Md., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lawrence Romorini's One Of A Kind Art Studio celebrates a record year collaborating with associations to create 3-dimensional art for anniversaries and executive retirements. The Risk Management Association is the latest client to honor their history, leaders and accomplishments in lobby art for their 100th anniversary.  RMA unveiled the retrospective November 18 at their annual conference in Philadelphia, where the lobby art will be installed in their headquarters as a centennial legacy.

"This artwork embodies all that is great about RMA, and highlights many of the treasures found in the RMA archives," says RMA President and CEO William Githens. "And if you think it's impossible to capture 100 years in a four-by-four frame, then you've never met Lawrence Romorini and Donna Rome."

With over 170 photos, publications and actual 3-D items, the collage includes a bust of Robert Morris, signer of the Declaration of Independence and first namesake of RMA. Romorini designed the structure as a decagon to reflect 100 years and also suggest a roundtable, where networking and information sharing have been vital to members since 1914. Benefits of RMA membership are engraved on the brass border surrounding the chronological flow of memorabilia.

One Of A Kind also provided an interactive feature with descriptive key for RMA's website to share the 100th anniversary art globally and identify the significance of every item: http://landing.rmahq.org/Centennial/reveal-21P5-120735.html

2013 has offered One Of A Kind the largest number yet of diverse association stories to transform into 3-dimensional retrospective art. In addition to RMA, they include California Teachers Assn.,  Compressed Gas Assn.,  Independent Bankers Assn. of Texas, American Society of Civil Engineers, Self-Storage Assn., National Rural Water Assn., National Milk Producers Federation, American Road and Transportation Builders Assn. and American Assn. for Justice.

And the year's not over! Lawrence Romorini is completing two more pieces of lobby art reflecting entirely different association industries, each founded in 1914.

"Every commission is an exciting challenge to transform memorabilia and oral history into a legacy honoring the past and celebrating the present," says Romorini. "The benefits of associations such as RMA, both to members and the U.S. economy, are always an education and inspiration. In the season of Thanksgiving, One Of A Kind is definitely thankful for our great associations!"
