Florida State University student Drexston Redway highlighted the connection between race, poverty and gender equality by displaying research data in an artistic manner. Redway, a junior studying studio art and marketing, reflected the link between poverty and being a minority through personal and local experiences, and how it affects young women in those situations. His research project embraced the idea that statistics and data can be represented through art and spark critical thinking about the community and gender issues.
