Parsons Festival 2018


May 10, 2018 - May 20, 2018

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.

The School of Design Strategies’ Integrated Design Program capstone exhibition is shown in the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries and the Art and Design History and Theory MADS exhibition is on view in the hallway of the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries. BFA Communication Design is represented in the windows of 2 W 13th Street. 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.
