Historical Note

Since at least 1927 through the 1980s, the students, staff, and faculty of Parsons participated in creating posters for the school, often to serve as recruitment publicity for the Admissions Department, to furnish general information, broadcast its curriculum, and announce campus events.

Posters created before 1970 were designed by individual staff, faculty, and students, and are limited to event and registration announcements. In 1970, shortly after the merger of Parsons with The New School University, Dean David Levy appointed noted designer and Parsons faculty member Cipe Pineles Director of Publications. In this new position, and at the request of the dean, Pineles embarked on a campaign to promote the school’s rapidly expanding curriculum through the use of heavily-circulated publications and posters. As her efforts gained steady support from the campus community, and the workload of the Publication office increased, Pineles often sought the help of students to create new design concepts and artwork. In 1977, she hired recent graduate Mies Hora as an assistant, and in 1979 solicited the illustrations of graduating senior Janet Amendola, who painted the iconic fruit for the poster which, for a number of years, became the primary image by which the school was identified.

Scope and Contents note

This group of materials consists of posters created for academic departments and administrative offices of Parsons The New School for Design. This series forms part of the Parsons Institutional Collections, Printed materials record group (PIC.05).

Materials in the series were created to serve two functions. The first advertises services to Parsons students. Examples include posters promoting internship fairs (Career Services Department), summer sessions and study abroad programs (Office of Admissions) and enrollment in specific academic departments. The second advertises exhibitions, lectures, screenings and programs open to the Parsons/New School community and to the general public. Examples include posters publicizing continuing education classes, exhibitions mounted in gallery spaces, and advertisements to attract student applicants. Posters with variations on the title, "Parsons is coming," were admissions recruitment posters, provided to high schools to publicize the arrival of school representatives.

Artists, illustrators, photographers and designers are identified below, when known. The series includes a number of posters by noted graphic designer Cipe Pineles Golden, including the iconic Parsons posters featuring fruit painted by Parsons senior Janet Amendola. The idea of using fruit to symbolize each of the Parsons campuses (oranges for Otis Art Institute/Parsons in Los Angeles, apples for Parsons New York, and grapes for Parsons Paris) was conceived shortly after the merger between the Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles and Parsons School of Design, New York City in 1979. Pineles, who often collaborated with students and faculty on poster designs, liked to experiment with a variety of paper and printing techniques for the posters. Other notable contributors include illustrators and faculty members Murray Tinkelman and John Russo; Mies Hora; Jean-Claude Suares; fne artist Larry Rivers; and photographer and graphic designer Henry Wolf.

With the exception of a 1927 poster advertising a student dance, the series does not contain any material created prior to 1956.
