Dominican Patriotism Senior Projects, Spring 2016 Thesis Statement: Due to political corruption and mismanagement, I have observed a progressive loss of patriotism, which affects the young adult's desire to support the country. This project attempts to solve the problem using the poster as a visual tool to reinforce and revitalize the image of patriotism in Dominican young adults. The poster conveys social and political ideas that aim to stir contemplation about patriotism, as a call for attention, that will hopefully awake and increase the desire to change the country’s situation.
