Check out this year’s Jane’s Walk NYC Tee
Congratulations to Germán Kropman
This year, for the first, we held an open call for designing the Jane’s Walk t-shirt. We were looking for creative designs that reflect the exploratory, fun, and community-driven spirit of Jane’s Walk. After careful consideration of all the incredible submissions, we are excited to announce our winner, Germán Kropman! This typographic map reflects the citywide spirit of the Jane’s Walk NYC festival. Germán was inspired to enter the t-shirt design contest by his sister Andrea, who has been a longtime Jane’s Walk leader.
Germán’s t-shirt design will be worn by hundreds of Jane’s Walk leaders’ t-shirts during the festival. He will also receive a ticket to our annual Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal Gala, a one-year MAS city-level membership, and a one-year membership to MoMA.
ABOUT JANE’S WALK
Jane’s Walk is a global festival of free, volunteer-led walking conversations inspired by urban activist, Jane Jacobs. During the Jane’s Walk festival, the simple act of exploring the city is enhanced with personal observations, local history, and civic engagement. MAS is proud to be the local organizer of Jane’s Walk NYC. What started with a handful of walks in 2011 has since grown into a three-day celebration featuring hundreds of walks across the five boroughs.
