Tommie C. Wallace, A.K.A (Town House Auk Med) of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan, attended K-12 school, received High School Diploma in 1977. The fall of September, 1977, I attended Wilberforce University, majoring in Fine Arts with a History Minor. in 1983 I received my Bachelor's Degree. While at Wilberforce I became President of Art Club and was also a student member of the National Conference of Black Artists in America in 1980. Since graduating from college, I have produced several murals in Kalamazoo. Michigan, and in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After entering several art exhibitions, I was accepted in my first one in Battle Creek, Michigan, the 12th Michigan Artists Competition Exhibition, in 1995. In 2005, I received a commission for a mural in Grand Rapids called "Yes, We Were There." The Mural featured African-American, men and women, who fought in all wars, even on the war known as the American Civil War.
