Parsons The New School for Design has teamed up with online flash boutique fab.com to select 30 designs from several hundred students submissions in the school's BFA Illustration Program. Facilitated by Parsons faculty members Steven Guarnaccia and Noël Claro, and Parsons alum and Fab founder Bradford Shellhammer, the chosen designs will be shown and sold through Fab.com.
"The overall quality of the art we received from students at Parsons was overwhelming," says Fab art buyer Austin Blonde. "We've turned this partnership into an opportunity for students to gain access to the design marketplace and experience the business aspect of entering the art market after college."
Parsons the New School for Design was established in 1896 by impressionist painter William Merritt Chase as environment for artists-in-training to pursue their work outside the confines of traditional art education. Renamed for former Industrial Revolution-era school president Frank Alvah Parsons, the school has become synonymous with top-tier, inspiring, outside-of-the-box art and design.
