American Sign Museum Names David Dupee Executive Director

Dupee to lead the Cincinnati museum through its next phase of development.

The American Sign Museum (ASM) in Cincinnati welcomed David Dupee as its new Executive Director earlier this week.

A Cincinnati native, Dupee has spent the past decade helping launch and scale mission-driven organizations. As a trained lawyer with a passion for social entrepreneurship, he co-founded Good City Brewing, a Milwaukee craft brewery.

Along with Good City, Dupee founded an investment crowdfunding platform devoted to democratizing access to capital for small businesses. He also played a role in advising the Wisconsin legislature on Assembly Bill 350, helping to create the first intrastate crowdfunding exemption passed by a state legislature.

“I’m incredibly excited to partner with our Board and amazing team as we double our footprint in July and establish the Museum as an important contributor to the culture of Cincinnati,” Dupee says.

ASM will soon finish a substantial expansion that will roughly double the size of the museum. The new area will extend the museum’s Main Street exhibition, as well add a theater space, a multi-use workshop, a catering kitchen and staff offices.
