CoSign brings nationally acclaimed program to Beaverton

The American Sign Museum is proud to announce the next round of participating communities in the upcoming class of CoSign.

CoSign is a place-making program (developed by the American Sign Museum/The Haile/US Bank Foundation) that leverages the power of visual communication to deliver real and lasting change by revitalizing business districts. The program brings the idea to life by uniting artists, businesses, and sign makers together to create signage that reflects the character of a neighborhood.

For the second round of the national program CoSign welcomes:

Beaverton Downtown Association from Beaverton, Oregon

Downtown Cincinnati Inc. from Cincinnati, OH

Village of Somerset from Somerset, OH

For the first time CoSign will expand beyond the Midwest and take place on the West Coast in Beaverton, OR. “The Beaverton Downtown Association (BDA) is extremely excited to be partnering with the American Sign Museum to further develop the creative identity of downtown Beaverton. Beaverton is the most diverse community in Oregon, and now our signage will be able to celebrate what makes our community unique.”, states Kevin Teater, the BDA executive director.

American Sign Museum: The American Sign Museum is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 by Tod Swormstedt, former editor of Signs of the Times magazine. Its mission is “to celebrate the rich history of American signage through preservation and education.” The museum is the premier resource for preserving historic signs and promoting the contributions the sign industry makes to commerce, culture and the American landscape.
