"Having worked with both Noah and Ken Rollins, I know how valuable their knowledge and skills will be to members of the business community.  Rollins Fine Art can make the most cost effective and dramatic use of art as an enhancement of image and quality of office life.  The company has already contributed to the public art environment in Downtown Tampa."

Christine M. BurdickPresident

"Nothing will add to one's comfort in visiting a business or service establishment more than beautiful works of art on their walls.  Many times the designers and architects need help in selecting works that are appropriate to the mission of either the business or service and the designers and others could truly benefit from the consultation that Rollins Fine Art could provide.  Ken Rollins, a competent artist in his own right, and a knowledgeable assessor of what constitutes quality works of art,  is someone who I am confident could be of great assistance to designers and architects.  He also has contact with a network of outstanding artists who need places for their work to be placed and appreciated by all types of citizens.

"Rollins Fine Art will be beneficial to artists and to designers and architects who seek to bring the beauty of great art to the facilities and spaces they create.  I very much support the mission of Rollins Fine Art and know it will be successful."

Rep. Bill HellerDistrict 52 (2007-2011)
Florida House of Representatives

"I have known Ken Rollins for over twenty years and have followed his career from the Polk Museum of Art to his last tenure, his extremely successful solution for our own Tampa Museum of Art.  Noah also has an outstanding resume both educationally and professionally.  The two are bringing a wealth of knowledge, artistic experience and curatorial skills to their new endeavor.  Rollins Fine Art will be an important asset to the City of Tampa and to its art collectors."
