2001 Allegheny Alumni Return

On March 27, 2009, four Class of 2001 alumni artists returned to the Allegheny College Art Department. Left to right are Alex Mead, Colleen Toledano, Eva Wylie and Bill Rodgers. While on campus they presented a panel, “Art After Allegheny”, explaining how they sustained their careers and developed as artists since graduating. The next day they met informally with current students to discuss their artwork.
