Subject: UCI presentation regarding my $1,000,000 gift to their School of Humanities.To: Graham Arader

Hello Graham,

I hope this email finds you well.

On behalf of the dean and the School of Humanities, we wanted to express our gratitude once again for providing us with the exquisite collections of artwork.  As you know, we held our first Humanities Dean's Salon on October 8th, and it was a smashing success.  With over 50 guests in attendance, we were able to provide a walking tour environment for easy viewing of the artwork set to the music of a live lutenist and guitarist.  All of our guests had overwhelmingly positive comments about their impressions of the artwork and marveled over the collection being available to students.  After brief remarks from Vice
Chancellor for Advancement, Gregory Leet, Dean Van Den Abbeele was able to speak to our guests about the impact of a collection of this size and talk about plans for future use.  The dean also unveiled the new name of the space where the art collection is house, Humanities AR&T Studio.

We invite you to visit a series of pictures from the delightful evening, please visit the following link here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uri27a5neshxo6i/AADMPnpSo6x0xZlysmmzkvBva?dl=0

If you have any issues at all accessing the photos or video, please do let me know.

Also, I wanted to let you know that I am going to be in NYC for the next two days, and a bit of Wednesday morning doing some alumni outreach activities.  I would be thrilled to meet you in person should you be available at all.  Please let me know either way.

Kindest Regards,Marijana
