Jen Graves

Jen Graves—The Stranger’s visual arts writer—writes about things you mostly, but not strictly, approach with your eyeballs. Her writing has been in Art in America, The Believer, and ArtNews, and the Warhol Foundation has given her some money to get lost in land art. She also digs teaching, at places like Cornish College of the Arts and Centrum. Jen has lived and written about art in the Pacific Northwest for 14 years.
