Brandon Graves Studios

Brandon Graves is a muralist who discovered his talent and passion for painting during a 7-year period of incarceration. Originally engaged during the #VoicesofCLE project, Brandon has the goal of using his talents to launch a community engagement program for young artists. Brandon’s Ignite! Impact Award is supporting 1-1 consultation in developing his vision, and contributes to directly covering his time and costs in running prototype programming through IngenuityLabs. Brandon’s first effort with Ingenuity has been to help coordinate a series of large scale VOTE murals placed in the Saint Clair Superior and Collinwood neighborhoods, along with accompanying activations including census education and voter registration.
