[automatic response to these emails]

Dear xxxx,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me about changes at the Warehouse Gallery. I have asked Jeffrey Hoone, executive director of the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers , to more fully respond to your concerns, as I trust his leadership, and this is a departmental personnel issue. I have copied him on this e-mail to facilitate his quick response to you.

Sorry, it's nothing personnel!


Syracuse has lost one its greatest assets. Astria Suparak, Inaugural Director of The Warehouse Gallery of Syracuse University, was removed from her position as of Sept. 30th, 2007, despite widespread support from community members, students, faculty, and the international art community. This decision was made unilaterally by Jeffrey Hoone, Executive Director of the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers (CMAC).

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.
