An API interpretive banner celebrating the life and accomplishments of Adirondack artist and entrepreneur Arto Monaco was displayed during the spring of 2016 at the Kelly Adirondack Center at Union College in Schenectady, NY. The banner was made possible by a generous grant from the Charles R.

The banner was previosly on display at the Adirondack History Museum in Elizabethtown, NY, and the Adirondack Interpretive Center. More display locations are being planned.
