Classes have ended, exams are a (sometimes dark) memory from May past, and for 3,470 New Schoolers, the 2015 academic year ended with the toss of a mortar board cap. Just prior to that, however, Parsons School of Design held its annual art and design roundup, where cutting-edge student work was presented across the Parsons community and for the general public. This year, it was larger than ever.
#ParsonsFestival spanned multiple boroughs as students traveled across the East River to showcase their senior theses and projects in the creative beehive of Industry City. Manhattan-side, the Sheila Johnson Design Center and other campus venues, as well as those in Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, and Midtown, also played host to the inventive apps, inspiring artworks, and socially-conscious designs of Parsons grads.
