In addition to Year-End gallery shows and exhibitions that many of the NYC-based schools will be holding, The Cooper Union, FIT, Parsons, Pratt, and SVA will be hosting our annual “NYCxDESIGN Student Showcase Night," online—featuring presentations from our leading design students. For the first time, a gallery of select student projects from each school will also be able to be viewed in an NYC Design Student gallery on and LinkNYC.

The theme this year's event is "Friction". Join us for transformative and inspirational night! 

RSVP is required. 

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
