The artist wishes to thank: John and Marva Warnock for their visionary endowment to create this Artist Residency Program; Allyson Gamble for her understanding, courage & trust; Dr. Raymond Tymas-Jones, Dean of the College of Fine Arts, for his hospitality; Gretchen Dietrich, Acting Director, University Museum of Fine Arts, for her institutional generosity; Brian Snapp, Chair of the Art & Art History Department, for his project leadership, nurturing & coordination; Adam Price, Director, Salt Lake Art Center, for his candor

Additional support from: Chair Donna White, Modern Dance Department, the Film Department, the Art & Art History Department staff, Janine Evans, Tiffany O'Kane, Dianne Sanchez, Sheryl Brog, Nevon Bruschke, Christopher Renstrom, the Hayes family, Horus, the Krensky family, the Balanesi family, Michelle & Samantha Snapp (& Louie), Margaret Locanto, Aaron Wood, Paul Monty Paret, Lila Graybill, Alison Denyer, Elena Bromberg, Dan Evans, Shawn Porter, Tyler Spurgeon, Ken, Mart Baumer, Anne Hansen, Liz Garman, Mario Navez, Julia Angulo, Carol Becker, Scott Tarr, Tiffini Porter & Hal Widlansky, Michelle Medina, Stevan Novaklich, Jacque Bell, Barton Poulson, Sofia Strempek, Jim Denier, Rebecca Solnit

Thanks to: The many city businesses and their support workers, who witnessed the many breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner long business conversations & numerous napkin drawings that the project demanded, such as the very friendly young staff of Cucina, the people of The Lower Avenues Neighborhood, Fresh boutique, the Coffee Garden, Starbucks downtown, Wholefoods in Sugarhouse, the waiters of Café Oasis, Sawadee Thai, Sage

I also personally wish to thank Utah artist Blaine Anderson, wherever he is, for generously introducing me to his people and his landscape in May 2007. Out of that memorable trip came my Inheriting Salt visual essay, gallery-exhibited in November 2008 in New York, followed by an invitation "out of the blue" in 2009 to this artist residency, which thus felt like a destiny.
