In celebration of a new gallery showing in room 806 in 2 West 13th Street, the Illustration department’s peer mentors Kristin Gormley, Robin Yao, and Emily Borges put up a fabulous skate deck show. Select students were asked to revamp a blank skate deck in the correlation to the theme of the show:
“Students are asked to reflect on the notion of travel through poetry and typographic design. Each student was given a deck and asked to choose a poem to depict.”
The goal for after the show is to pair up with DT students and have the decks sent out into the world to fully realize the idea of travel. Where the decks will be found by a passerby and be asked to use the deck in what ever manner as they take photos and hashtag “parsonseightrium”. In this way the students hope to track the decks with a GPS tracker as it goes around the world, following it’s journey.
Stop by during the week to see the show in all it’s glory and lets give a big shout out to the artists that participated in this exhibition:
