Blog-ImageThis October, Portico Magazine featured Ko'ox Boon as a part of their annual Art edition. Chocked full of dynamic articles on rising Jackson artists, Ko'ox Boon is honored to be the nonprofit featured in the "Giving Tree" section.

Written by Assistant Editor Kristen Lucas, the piece is an artistic feat in itself. Kristen graduated from Millsaps College in 2013 with a BA in Communication Studies. Kristen is a creative with an eye for design, and she looks forward to working with Ko'ox Boon in the near future. She tells us, "Working at PORTICO has blessed me in innumerable ways—I’m constantly learning the importance of stories and the responsibility we have as communicators to listen and tell them. Interviewing the Ko’ox Boon team and sharing their story with our readers was humbling and inspiring. My entire Millsaps education and the work I’ve pursued since graduation came full circle as I listened to my dear friends and classmates tell me about seeds of change they’re constantly planting in places both near and far. I just hope I captured one glimmer of Ko’ox Boon’s light!" We look forward to Kristen designing the catalogue featuring the pieces up for sale in the 50//50 Fine Art Auction. Thank you Portico and Kristen Lucas .
