A roundup of ideas and projects from around the Institute

Week of May 30, 2022

For Pride Month, @prattinteriors is sharing student work from this spring’s graduate studio led by Adjunct Assistant Professor Virginia Black that partnered with G.L.I.T.S. (Gays & Lesbians Living in a Transgender Society). featured Daniel Herrera, AOS Illustration ’21, in a profile that highlighted how he shifted from a career in Major League Baseball to art: “There’s no one to throw my drawings at, I’m competing against myself.”

Follow @prattyouth for updates from the Pratt Young Scholars Class of 2024, including rising junior Sam who shared art made during the program: “I would consider this my favorite because that was the first time I even attempted drawing a full figure. Firsts of anything for me are always fun because I enjoy learning something new.”

Sophonie Milande Joseph, adjunct associate professor in the Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment (GCPE), is one of the inaugural fellows of New City Critics, a program from Urban Omnibus/the Architectural League of New York and Urban Design Forum to empower new voices in how cities are designed and developed.

Eva Díaz, associate professor of history of art and design, was featured in a Q&A on the Art & Education platform. Díaz discussed why she got into teaching, how she structures her courses at Pratt, and how she connects her students with the local art scene: “At Pratt we have almost limitless resources to experience art in New York City.”

Painting Dolphins: Environmental Approaches to Creativity now on view in the Brooklyn campus library features Class of 1990 alumna Barbara Ann Levy who conducted a study of the painting activity of four Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins at the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon Shores, Florida.
