Solange to be Feted at the 70th Annual Pason’s Benefit


Almost a year and a half after its release, Solange’s A Seat at the Table and the various visual and meditative art series following it are still ringing in a host of accolades and praises in the form of prestigious achievement awards. The latest comes from Parsons School of Design whose Executive Dean Joel Towers is feting her “for her notable contributions to the music and fashion industries…

Solange will be honored at the 70th Annnual Parson’s Benefit on May 21st at Pier Sixty in NYC along with Gucci’s President and CEO Marco Bizzari and Farfetch founder Jose Neves.

For those paying attention, A Seat at the Table was a personal testimony in breathtaking expression more than it was an album. ‘An Ode To’ at the Guggenheim Museum and ‘Scales’ at the Menil Collection & Pérez Art Museum (as well as its special reboot for the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, TX) were experiences with vehement gravity moreso than performances. For that, we’re so proud to extend more congratulatory praise to our leading lady Solange on these well-earned and fruitful victories.
