Letter of Gratitude

From Rob Wilson

Published before 2005


To Whom It May Concern,

I wished to express gratitude and appreciation for all of your efforts to renew the classical academic traditions of art. I know that going against the grain, your institution must be the object of much persecution from modernist "artists" and wanted to say that your efforts are greatly appreciated. It is the exact thing that I myself have longed to do. I also wished to propose a question: I am a portrait artist who would like an MFA is painting. I have pursued a free lance career and have done well, but have withheld applying to graduate schools because of their obvious ties to modernism. Do you know of any accredited universities offering an MFA, who maintain the classical academic traditions?

Thank you for your time,

Rob Wilson
