Artist Curtis M. Graves utilizes the medium of art to tell a story of his home state. Graves was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and received his education from Texas Southern University and Princeton University. Before working for 30 years at NASA, he was the first black elected to the Texas House since 1891, where he served for six years. Graves is now a fine art photographer with photographs in numerous businesses and private collections across the country. His photography has been exhibited in museums and galleries in New York, Alabama, Georgia, Maryland and Louisiana. Graves' photographs are a reflection of his hopefulness, yet realistic vision of the world.
