One week after the presidential inauguration, Parsons' faculty critiques not the students but this country's new leader: the fashion, the stage, the sound, and the lights of the inaugural ceremonies for the 44th president of the United States. On the closing of the exhibition OURS: Democracy in the Age of Branding, this roundtable reveals how the pros judge what is served to the masses.

Participants hail from various departments at Parsons, ranging from fashion to product and light design, from constructed environment to new media. Moderated by Tim Marshall, Dean of Parsons The New School of Design. Presented by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics in collaboration with Parsons The New School for Design, on occasion of the Vera List Center's 2008-2009 annual theme "Branding Democracy."
