Alan Miller, the host of Minnesota’s well-known “Access to Democracy” TV show, calls Park West Gallery Founder Albert Scaglione “the personification of the American Dream.”

Recently, Miller invited Scaglione to appear on the home-grown interview show to talk about the history of Park West Gallery, Park West’s online auctions, and Scaglione’s new book The Book of Albert.

The Minnesota Star-Tribune has called Miller’s show “refreshingly retro” and praised the program for the “depth and nuance” of Miller’s “wide-ranging discussions.”

While the program often hosts politicians and pundits, Miller extended a special invitation to Scaglione because he’s a long-time Park West collector. In fact, Miller proudly displayed one of his Peter Max works that he acquired from Park West during the interview.
