Making Conversations


January 20, 2015 - February 4, 2015

Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries

Opening Reception: Tuesday, January 20, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The works presented in this exhibition celebrate the diversity of media, themes, and approaches that make up the First Year at Parsons. The exploratory and cross-disciplinary learning introduced in the first year curriculum aim to merge art and design with the context of the larger world. Projects blend digital and manual making skills, conceptual thinking, tangible objects, systems and theory to simultaneously build a solid foundation and challenge that same foundation.

The conversations that begin in the first year ripple out over time, so we have asked a group of current second year students to share their work in this exhibition. Last Spring these same students were selected, while still freshmen, to be in the Parsons Festival exhibition Making Meaning. This is an opportunity to see their work again and to look at their evolution as students, designers, and scholars and to make connections to their first year peers.
