The My Oyster projects are a collaboration between Michelle Grabner and Brad Killam, a husband and wife pair working together since 1992. For their My Oyster series, Grabner and Killam employ a large hanging support system to display a selection of their works. The project includes other artifacts that demonstrate their familial relationship to a life of art, including sculptures, working drawings, and related support material. The show was organized by AU art professor Tim Doud.
