Thanks Knoxville and East Tennessee !

As Founder and Chief Curator of Ink & Blood, I’d like to
take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the people of
Knoxville and East Tennessee for being such wonderful hosts for our
exhibition: Ink & Blood: Dead Sea Scrolls to the English Bible.

Knoxville and East Tennessee is a wonderful area. I think the character
of any city can be found in its people – and the people of Knoxville
and East Tennessee have a wonderful spirit. A record number of you
attended this exhibition during our stay and we truly appreciate the
way in which you warmly welcomed us and supported us through your
attendance – many of you visiting the exhibition multiple times. We
have truly enjoyed our time here.

It is because of valued patrons like you that we are able to share this
incredible collection of artifacts, manuscripts, and books from around
the world in telling a unique story seldom told—the history of the
Bible, especially the Bible in English.

After a 12-week stay in Knoxville, our exhibition is now gearing up for
our next destination, Lexington, Kentucky, where we will open on
Friday, June 24, 2005 at 9 AM.

Again we thank you, people of Knoxville and East Tennessee for the hospitality and graciousness you extended to us.
