This is a collection of 32 pastel portraits commissioned by Virginia Tech.  The collection is on exhibit at Virginia Tech's G Burke Johnston Center in Blacksburg,Virginia.

 "Ms. Wallace had never met any of the victims or even visited Virginia Tech, but her artistic skill and personal empathy produced some of the most beautiful and moving works the university received,"  said Virginia Tech University President Dr. Charles W. Steger.

"Wallace's work, which took several months of research and creation for each set, stands as a profound and generous example of the care and concern expressed for the victims, their loved ones, and the university community by unknown thousands of people around the world," said Dr. Steger.

  My hope is that these portraits highlight the value of human life and together promote peace in our nation.
