Cassie Moran to Present at Pop Culture Conference

February 2, 2016

Cassie Moran's research project for Visual Culture and Rhetoric was accepted at the Pop Culture Conference in Seattle, Washington this March, 2016.  Cassie graduated this past December with a degree in Studio Arts and an Art Therapy certificate.  She will present her research on the intersections of color psychology and mind mapping as tools for therapeutic healing.  Her work in this area evolved from her coursework in Visual Culture and Rhetoric as well as her Senior Art show “Movement.”  It represents her growing expertise in the fields of art therapy, clinical psychology, and representational mapping.
