On January 2, 2002, USA TODAY wrote an article about this project titled "The Very Picture of Patriotism." Subsequently, National Review Online wrote an article entitled, "George Not Welcome Here," addressing the disappearance of George Washington's portrait from America's schools. As part of this initiative presentations of this portrait have been made throughout the country and in England. The portrait available to purchase graces the walls of many State Houses including; New Jersey, Alabama, Maryland and Virginia.
