The rains have (hopefully) passed, lines for free Shakespeare in the Park tickets race down Park Avenue West, and open space in the city’s parks are once again crammed with bikini-clad sunbathers. It’s obviously summer, but that doesn’t mean we’re not busy here at The New School…
I © NY
Few can disagree with assertions that Milton Glaser is a marketing genius. About 35 years after he branded the “I © NY” logo for tourism purposes, the message is still going strong. Now, we know we’re supposed to be original here, but eh, the campaign worked wonders before, right? With that, check out our latest New School Stories video, where students talk about their © for the city.
And All That Jazz
This summer, Union Square boasts more than a smorgasbord of food trucks, cardboard tables shouldering elbows of chess-playing fanatics, and remnants of the Occupy Movement. Our very own jazz students will serenade your lunchtime escape every Tuesday and Thursday at noon. Click here for the schedule.
Romanticism, Impressionism, Foodism…
The relationship between art and food is nothing new. Heck, Dutch artist Jan Davidszoon de Heem was painting steaks way back in the 1600s. Fast forward 400 years, and the saying that ‘art is food for the soul’ is more literal than the elusive author probably ever meant. Always at the forefront of the next big development in the field, The New School hosted architect Anwar Mekyach and Momofuku founder David Cheng for its Dining + Design series with the James Beard Foundation. Check out a recap of the event here.
How To: Start a Cyber War
This just in: now you, too, can be a cyber techie. Fast Company’s Co. Labs reported this week on Parsons’ alumnus Samuel Snider-Held’s master’s thesis project, an instruction kit on computer hacking. To be clear, the new grad’s Pandora’s box isn’t available—that wasn’t even the point of the project—he just wanted to demonstrate “the changing nature of power in our increasingly connected world.” Check out the story here.
