    Logo design, signage, and digital and social media applications for Parsons Festival 2018 were designed by Patrick Serr, MPS Communication Design '18, and Samia Husari, MPS Communication Design '18, in the University Design Studio course, taught by Lucille Tenazas, spring 2018.

    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.

    Parsons Festival 2018 will kick off May 1 and run through May 18. It will feature numerous end-of-year exhibitions, events, presentations, open studios, and programs.

    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.

    This year's calendar of events represents the full breadth of our academic programs. We invite you to join us as we celebrate the class of 2014 and preview the next generation of leaders in art and design.
