Michelle Graves (Las Vegas)
Graves is an interdisciplinary artist who uses research and text for the foundation of her existential work. She created A Life Is A Life inspired by the lack of public health research on gun violence as an epidemic and chose to create a visceral study of the effects of five different household guns.
