Under the guidance of NWSA graphic design professor Rosario Martinez-Cañas, 13 New World School of the Arts college students and alumni open the season’s scheduled exhibitions with Six Words – Stories, a story-telling exploration through typography exhibition. The show borrows its concept from legendary American writer Ernest Hemingway’s lore that claims the prolific writer challenged himself to write a story in just six words. The result: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Hemingway’s six-word story and self-critique have never been verified but what is irrefutable is that great stories can be told in 60,000 words or just six. The students were tasked with each developing 14 story executions in just 14 days, utilizing the typography of their choice.
