A roundup of ideas and projects from around the Institute

In America: A Lexicon of Fashion now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art features several members of the Pratt community in its exploration of fashion in the United States. They include Sophie Andes-Gascon, BFA Fashion Design ’15, and Visiting Instructor Claire McKinney, BFA Fashion Design ’15, of SC103; Jeremy Scott, BFA Fashion Design ’95; fashion alumnus Norman Norell; Susan Cianciolo, assistant professor of fashion; and Mike Eckhaus, visiting associate professor of fashion design, of Eckhaus Latta.

The Pratt Institute Interior Design BFA and MFA digital exhibition that looks at how interiors can impact the world was highlighted in the “Ten most popular Dezeen School Shows of 2021.”

Pratt proudly announces its Living Land Acknowledgment, and encourages faculty, staff, and students to honor Lenape people and recognize occupied land by beginning all gatherings with it.

The latest issue of The Prattler, the student-run literary arts magazine, is available to read online. Themed on “(In)Visibility,” it includes interviews with Pratt students about how they view their work, a critique on the hypervisibility of gender in art and advertising, and an exploration of independent bookstores in Brooklyn.

Interior design students envisioned the future of a building in Sara D. Roosevelt Park on the Lower East Side that has been closed to the public since the 1970s. Working with community members, they developed proposals for the revitalization of this urban community anchor, building on previous programming studies by community groups and former Pratt students.
