Exclusive: Rihanna to Be Honored at This Year’s Parsons Benefit

This year’s Parsons School of Design Benefit has a high-wattage star attached: none other than Bad Gal RiRi herself. Rihanna will be honored — alongside Eileen Fisher and Neiman Marcus — at the school’s 69th annual benefit, taking place on May 22 at Pier 60.

“Parsons is proud to present Rihanna with this honor, as she has inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style,” said Joel Towers, the school’s executive dean, in a statement. “She has championed our recent alumni on a number of occasions by wearing their designs. She is also creating important philanthropic programs, which support communities by fostering effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world through her Clara Lionel Foundation.”

“It’s such a thrill to know that a design school as prestigious as Parsons School of Design would present me with this honor,” Rihanna said in the statement. “I consistently find creative and exciting designs coming from Parsons alumni, so I feel a deep connection to the school.” (She’s worn pieces by several recent grads, including Matthew Adams Dolan and Melody Ya Jun Lin.) “But I am especially grateful that Parsons would recognize me for the work I’ve done in regards to philanthropy.” It’s not the only laurel she’s gotten recently for her charity work: Harvard named her its Humanitarian of the Year last month, an award she accepted with an immortal ponytail flick.

I remember feeling low key anxious last year because I did not see ANY accepted art portfolios that had digital illustrations in it. There were some graphic design pieces in them, but no environments or character art. While my portfolio contains a lot of traditional media, I focus and prefer digital media.

I plan on majoring in illustration to do artwork for books or in digital media for story boarding and concept art.

NOTE: The video only shows the artwork. For more information about the pieces and additional details, please look over the power point I pulled together.

I got scholarships for all of the schools (except RISD >__>…) but I ended up choosing MECA! They were the most affordable, I liked their student work, as well as Portland itself! 

If you have any questions on the application process, I’ll do my best to answer them!

I hope this was helpful in some way!

I changed the 17 to 18 in my bio ;) and also I am extremely happy to announce that I am officially a part of the Parsons School of Design class of 2021!!! I’m moving to NYC in the fall, so if any of you lovelies have any insider tips and shit feel free to help me out a little by messaging me, I would really appreciate it. x 

thank you for all the continuous love and support. xx

“FLOWER LADY”

by Danielle Mastrion

A Parsons School of Design trained painter and muralist, Mastrion has painted all across the U.S. and abroad, looking to “continue painting walls & canvases in every city she visits.” She says she’s been painting her entire life, but as her paintings kept getting larger and larger a friend finally suggested she put her work on a wall, and her career hasn’t been the same since. Her extensive mural work in NYC has included a series of commemorative murals at Yankee Stadium, and the largest mural in Coney Island for Luna Park NYC. As a Brooklyn resident Mastrion is amazed by the movement she’s seen in the community’s transition to an ‘art’ neighborhood, and has been happy to add multiple pieces to its walls—this wall on Troutman St. was done as part of the 5-year anniversary celebration of the Bushwick Collective Block Party.  @daniellebknyc  @thebushwickcollective  

Rihanna was nominated for 8 grammys and left with 0. The next day she was awarded with the Harvard Humanitarian Award. Sunday, she was nominated for 14 BBMAs and left with 0. The next day, she was honored by Parson.

“Parsons is proud to present Rihanna with this honor, as she has inspired millions through her powerful music and distinct style,” said Joel Towers, the school’s executive dean, in a statement. “She is also creating important philanthropic programs, which support communities by fostering effective education, health, and emergency response programs around the world through her Clara Lionel Foundation.”
