GD Thesis project on the Front Page of Cherokee Newspaper

Graphic Design Senior Jesse Walton, a CURS grant recipient, is currently featured on the front page of the Cherokee Phoenix Newspaper in Tahlequah, Oklahoma for the senior thesis project. Jesse’s work, "The Revelation Booth serves as an epitome to bring an understanding to the viewers outside of the Indigenous Community to understand their privilege, to see the hardships, confusion and solemness through the installation and create this self-aware feeling, to call to change the viewer’s perspectives, to be motivated to change their own thinking.”
