Anelle Miller, Director of the Society of Illustrators, got her degree in Fashion Illustration at Parsons. The Society of Illustrators has long had a close relationship with the Parsons Illustration program, with increasing inclusion of our students’ work in the prestigious, annual Society of Illustrators Student Scholarship Exhibition. The society has not only been a pillar of support for the Parsons Illustration program; it’s also been a constant source of inspiration for students, as classes are often brought over to contemplate works within the hallowed halls of the society–founded in 1901.
A recent article in the New York Times, which highlights how Miller has revitalized the society by programming events to lure a younger, “edgier, more relevant audience,” as she puts it, mentions one such class visit. Read all about it here (and be sure to check out the amazing events happening at the Society of Illustrators, including sketch nights, film screenings, lectures and workshops!)
