Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries
The Parsons Festival is an annual series of art and design events in which cutting-edge student work is presented to the Parsons community and the public. The festival takes place at the end of each academic year and includes thesis exhibitions and critiques, thought-provoking public programs, interactive installations, gallery openings, workshops, and special events leading up to Commencement.
On campus, the School of Design Strategies’ undergraduate programs’ (Integrated Design and Strategic Design and Management) exhibitions will open on Thursday, May 2 in the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries. The School of Art, Media, and Technology’s exhibition will open May 4 in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery. Additional end-of-year exhibitions, events, presentations, open studios, and programs will take place throughout campus and the city.
The festival showcases the creative and intellectual achievements of Parsons’ graduating students — a diverse and exciting group of artists, designers, architects, photographers, filmmakers, technologists, scholars, and strategists. Individual schools and programs will display the work of their students, demonstrating how Parsons has shaped students’ research and practice. Parsons Festival offers the campus community and the general public opportunities to experience and engage with the innovation, critical inquiry, and social concerns that drive the creative process at Parsons.
