Patrick Lai and William Shea at Amanda Harris Gallery of Contemporary Art. December 2013.
FIELD NOTES: It was written because here there was no real documentation of local graffiti in the greater Las Vegas valley, said William Shea on KNPR's State of Nevada broadcast of June 11. Shea and "Fade to Gray" co-author/photographer Patrick Lai published a 14-month photographic record of walls before they were buffed out or painted over. It was self-published to maintain paper quality, said Shea when I picked up a copy at a book signing in December. It's highly recommended.
