I am writing this letter in support of Astria Suparak, Director of the Warehouse Gallery at Syracuse University. I was surprised to learn that Astria is losing her job. I have worked with Astria as an artist. She curated my work into the exhibition Faux Naturel, which exhibited at the Warehouse Gallery and then later the Foreman Art Gallery in . In all of my experiences with Astria she has conducted herself professionally. Astria is an experienced and talented young curator who brings a significant contribution to the city of Syracuse and to . The attendance at openings, invited guest artist lectures and the reviews of the exhibitions that Astria has curated indicate that her programming has the support of people on campus as well as national and international arts communities.

At the time of Suparak's dismissal, Hoone also canceled her forthcoming exhibitions, including "Keep It Slick: Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men," due to open in November 2007.
