It was standing room only when Alvia Wardlaw signed copies of her book Charles Alston" and her article in the "Thornton Dial in the 21st Century" catalogue at The Collective. We thank Dr. Wardlaw for sharing the day with us and appreciate all of her admirers who visited and recognized the contributions she has made to the art world and academia.

The Collective was chosen as a venue to visit by
