Jen Graves

Jen Graves—The Stranger’s visual arts writer—writes about things you mostly, but not strictly, approach with your eyeballs. She was a finalist for the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Criticism, and her writing has been in Art in America, the Believer, and ArtNews. The Warhol Foundation has given her money to get lost in land art, and she digs teaching, too, at places like Centrum and Cornish College of the Arts. Jen has lived and written about art in the Pacific Northwest for 15 years.
