“This letter is to express my deep appreciation for you making my visit one of the best museum experiences I have ever had. I am newly acquainted with Pre-Columbian art and my goal for the last five years has been to visit the collection at your museum. During the Democratic National Convention I had the opportunity and found the collection to be extraordinary, especially since it was my first viewing, other than at the Smithsonian. You greeted my friend and me at the desk and you were so welcoming, my anticipation was heightened. We spoke about our shared excitement with Pre-Columbian art and you recommended that we see the other exhibits, one of which was Fashion and I love fashion. When we were finished, you were most gracious and took us to the shop where we spent considerable and enjoyable time.
I wanted to let you know how much it meant to me to talk with you. Having someone to converse with about what art is, for me, a rare and wonderful treat. I thought you were a docent because of your knowledge and enthusiasm. I conclude by thanking you for your contribution to making such a fine museum so delightful to visit and look forward to visiting again.”
