To Whom It May Concern:

During the past year, we have enjoyed the good fortune to display three exquisite metal sculptures created by Michael Kmiotek . These were carefully placed at sites that displayed their special character to good advantage and have proven to be popular beyond expectation. Kanapaha Botanical Gardens is a relatively young facility that currently lacks the resources to host a Chihuly glass sculpture display within its gardens, but our capacity to attract the work of Michael Kmiotek and the public attention that followed suggests we have reached that threshold.

The creativity and skill implicit in the work of Mr. Kmiotek have helped to transform our horticultural offerings---of which we are very proud---into components of something larger. It is difficult to integrate the severity of metal sculpture into the soft structure of a garden, but Mr. Kmiotek has succeeded. The vision he brings to the execution of his work are exceptional and should be encouraged.

It has been our very good fortune to offer to the public the talents of Mr. Kmiotek and it would be your good fortune as well, should you select him for this commission. Please accept our unqualified endorsement of his application for this venture.

Sincerely yours,
Don Goodman, Director
