Ray Christian, a storyteller and instructor at Appalachian State University, compartmentalizes his life of 55 years into three disparate segments: an impoverished childhood in a Richmond, Virginia, ghetto, 20 years serving his country in the U.S. Army, and the past two decades “doing nothing but going to school.”
Graphic design faculty member Taekyeom Lee combines typography, ceramics and 3D printing to create artistic texture and structure. His work also bridges a gap for non-artists to pursue artistic endeavors.
