Dana Kristine Cheit / 2017 Thesis Candidate

Dana Kristine Cheit is a digital illustrator with a dual interest in graphic design. Cheit’s thesis work, Young Rebels, explores the role that visual metaphor has played in activist movements throughout history.

Through the subversion of everyday symbols, in tandem with a re-imagining of the common collectible trading card, Young Rebels invites young people to find personal connections with young activists throughout history, and through the power of visual metaphor, to co-opt the ordinary objects in their lives into tools of resistance and education.


Be sure to join us on Friday, May 12th from 6-9pm at the MFA Graduate Studios to enjoy Dana’s thesis work, along with the other 2017 graduates!
