From the Author
I would first like to thank Sara Angel for asking me to write this text, and also express my appreciation to Meg Taylor, Sarah Brohman, Alison Reid, Nathalie de Blois, Gaeby Abrahams, and the other members of the ACI team who have been so enthusiastic, helpful, and professional throughout. While I have benefited from conversations with many of Wieland’s friends and colleagues over the years, during the preparation of this online art book I was fortunate enough to meet with Phyllis Lambert, and I’d like to thank her for so vividly describing Wieland’s lively wit and intelligence and for sharing aspects of their friendship. —Johanne Sloan
