Original Aladdin Lunchbox Art
As part of the SAA 2006 reception at the National Museum of American History, the museum's archives showed off some of its treasures. One of the coolest: these original paintings of the art destined to go on school lunchboxes manufactured by Aladdin Industries. (Note the Beatles design in the middle.) The museum acquired 50 cubic feed of records from the corporation in 2003 after it closed down its Nashville headquarters.
