VCB collaborated with a group of high school students and their professor Tyler Kelley from the Parsons School of Design in a project to create bow flags and posters for the boathouse. The high school students in grades 9 – 12 from high schools all over the city were participating in the Fall 2014 Pre-College Academy offered at Parsons. The class visited the boathouse, took a tour and learned about VCB’s mission and activities from VCB president Sally Curtis. VCB has been considering alternative logos and designs for bow flags and the students were given the graphic design project.
Sally Curtis and her grandson Tristan attended the Open Studio Exhibition at Parsons on December 20th for a tour of the studio and to see the students’ work. Students presented their flags and posters for review. The work was beautifully designed and executed and we are excited to see how the bow flags look flying.
