"Dear Edmund:

We appreciate your interest in exhibiting your work in this year's DaimlerChrysler Financial Services/Cranbrook Academy of Art exhibit. Unfortunately, since the choices were made, there have been budget cuts and a few pieces had to be eliminated from the show due to framing/pedestal/plexi cover costs.

Unfortunately, your piece was one of the ones eliminated. We will make arrangements to have it returned to you as soon as possible.

Please verify the address these will be returned to is:

xxxxx Lightsxxx
Novi, MI xxxxx

We hope you understand and we wish you luck in the future with your art."
