  • Parsons’ galleries are a vibrant downtown destination for art and design programming, filled year-round with exhibitions by outside artists and designers, faculty, and students. The galleries serve as a high-profile exhibition setting where students gain construction, installation, and presentation experience.

  • About Our Galleries 

    Part of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons’ two state-of-the-art galleries measure more than 4,000 square feet: the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery and the smaller Arnold and Sheila Aronson Galleries, with Fifth Avenue frontage. Parsons’ main street-level exhibition and meeting spaces also include plasma screens, a rotating wallpaper design, and an innovative student critique area which enables the public to observe the design dialogue that is central to a Parsons education.

    Location: Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, Parsons School of Design, 66 Fifth Avenue at 13th Street, New York

    Gallery Hours: Open daily 12:00–6:00 p.m. and late Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m.; closed all major holidays and holiday eves.
