Dr. James and Janie Washington Cultural Center is pleased to host Mr. West May 17th from 6 to 8pm for a conversation about his work managing the historical artwork of Sasarine “Dixie” LaCroix, the Doll Lady. The collection of dolls and dioramas was created by the gifted craftswoman Sasarine “Dixie” LaCroix in Seattle beginning as early as the 1940’s. Ms. Sasarine came to be known as the “Doll Lady” for her dedication to educating youth about prominent, talented and accomplished African Americans.
Mr. Calvin West, a lifelong neighbor of Ms. Lacroix, manages more than two dozen displays that require special handling and care for storage and transport.
