Credit largely belongs to Ked Dell (the Museum's Curator for Exhibits) who was able to call on Museum friends for objects to fortify her idea along with objects owned by the Museum. Jim Greaves and Ken McCloud lent "rabbit figure" stones from California.

Potomac Viewing Stone Group was meeting at the National Arboretum this past weekend. Several members contributed to the Museum's exhibit. Past president of California Suiseki Society Eorl Carlson critiqued collected stones. Eorl's father Bob donated the second stone in the exhibit to the Museum.

Museum Exhibits Curator Ked Dell visited IBC and offered several improved photos of the exhibit (see Above).

She additionally noted:
It was truly a bi-coastal collaboration, and I want the lenders to share the accolades for making it possible.

- From California Aiseki Kai: Chung Kruger, Bonnie McGinnis, Ken McLeod, Jim Greaves

- From Potomac Viewing Stone Group: Brian McCarthy, Glenn Reusch, John Carlson, Chris Cochrane
The extraordinary malachite landscape view stone (table 3) was a gift to the Museum from Ralph Johnson, who is also associated with California Aiseki Kai.
