Mauresa Mitchell is from Houston, Texas, and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Oklahoma State University. While at OSU, she was selected to be a semi-finalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards, receiving a silver award in both Editorial and Illustration categories. She has additionally had multiple works accepted into the Adobe Showcase and the National Student Show.
Interested in the power of digital interactive design as a learning tool, Mitchell has explored ways in which museums use interactive design within their exhibits. Investigating visitor experiences and interactive designs, Mitchell has created an extension of her findings through an interactive exhibition of her own. UnBEElievable aims to interact with visitors while creating dialogue about the importance of honeybees in our society. The exhibition is presented as part of the Master of Fine Arts Degree requirements. The show is made possible in part, by funding from KSU Fine Arts Fees, and support from the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Small Grant Program for K-State Graduate Students.
