Johnson Grant Funds Billboard Campaigns

billboards-small.gif (26169 bytes) The Robert Green Ingersoll Birthplace Museum will reach out to new audiences, thanks to an outdoor advertising campaign funded by a generous grant from the James Hervey Johnson Charitable Educational Trust. In addition to funding a full year of the Dresden, N.Y., museum's operations, the Trust funded five months of billboard advertising during 1996 and 1997.

The Council for Secular Humanism designed a dramatic six-color billboard one that's almost certainly the only billboard ever to feature the word "freethinker." The billboard went up in five prominent locations in the Finger Lakes tourist region during September and October. The billboards will return in June, July and August 1997.

If you're in the Finger Lakes next summer, look for our billboards:

  • Northbound on State Route 14, approaching Dresden from Watkins Glen
  • Southbound on State Route 14, approaching Dresden from Geneva
  • Eastbound on US 20, approaching Geneva from Rochester and Canandaigua
  • Westbound on US 20, approaching Geneva from Seneca Falls (home of the US Women's Rights National Historic Park)
  • Opposite the Corning Glass Center in Corning, NY
