NEW YORK, July 17, 2013—Parsons The New School for Design presents its 2013 Thesis and Capstone Website, featuring select projects by graduating students from across the disciplines at Parsons.

The website provides an overview of the diversity of work taking place at Parsons, which was presented this spring during the Parsons Festival. The festival featured exhibitions, symposia, panel discussions, critiques and special projects that celebrated the next generation of artists and designers.

“During the festival, we opened our doors to the public to experience the breadth and depth of contemporary art and design practice, and to preview critically engaged and transformative work,” said Parsons Executive Dean Joel Towers. “This annual event has become a highlight of our year.”

The thesis site can be filtered by each of the academic programs at Parsons, as well as the five thematic schools in which these programs are housed. Among the highlights is the first crop of thesis projects from the new Parsons undergraduate program in Urban Design. To view work from this program and more, please visit www.newschool.edu/parsons/thesis.
