This week, the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons celebrates the opening of two new exhibitions: ReSource (June 22-August 6), which highlights the winners of this year’s Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers, and Re-Imagining Orozco (June 25-September 12), which explores the legacy of the university’s famed Orozco murals.
Featuring an exceptional group of projects from young architects and firms around the world, ReSource celebrates the winners of the 29th Annual Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. The annual prize was established to recognize works of high quality and encourage the exchange of ideas among young architects. To celebrate the opening of the exhibition, the Architectural League will present a discussion with exhibition participants on June 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium. ReSource will be on view in the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries through August 6.
Coinciding with the Bicentennial of the Mexican Revolution, Re-Imagining Orozco features new work by visiting artist Enrique Chagoya
as well as contributions from students and faculty from across the university that respond to Mexican artist Jose Clemente Orozco’s mural cycle, A Call to Revolution
and Table of Universal Brotherhood
, one of the most important pieces in the New School Art Collection. Chagoya, a Mexican-born American artist, will present new work that responds to the Orozco murals, the only public commissions by a Mexican muralist left in New York City. The exhibition is curated by New School Art Collection curators Silvia Rocciolo and Eric Stark. An opening reception will be held on June 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Anna-Maria and Steven Kellen Gallery at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, where the exhibition will remain on view through September 12.
