Parsons' pop-up exhibition Impact! at the South Street Seaport has been extended through July 31. Impact! explores the ways in which designers, artists, scholars, technologists, and strategists from different disciplines come together--often in unexpected or complex ways--to push the limits of their practice and create new possibilities for social change.

This exhibition showcases projects from Parsons School of Design ranging from product design, lighting design, fine art, fashion design, and strategic design and management concepts. Many projects were created in collaboration with industry partners.

This exhibition is in collaboration with the Seaport District, the Howard Hughes Corporation, the Downtown Alliance, and NYCxDesign.

Exhibition location: 117 Beekman Street, New York, NY Gallery hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00AM to 7:00PM. Open to the public.

The New School’s Parsons School of Design, which was recently named the number one art and design school in the United States by Top Universities, has been a pioneer in art and design education for more than a century. Based in New York but active around the world, Parsons offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the full spectrum of design disciplines. Critical thinking and collaboration are at the heart of a Parsons education. An integral part of The New School, Parsons builds on the university’s legacy of progressive ideals, scholarship, and pedagogy. Parsons graduates are leaders in their respective fields with a shared commitment to creatively and critically addressing the complexities of life in the 21st century.
