Brynna Tucker has a BFA in Sculpture from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, a MFA/MS in New Forms and History of Art and Design from Pratt Institute, and is currently finishing a Certificate in Small Business and Entrepreneurship from Hunter College.
Brynna has worked in the Center for Career & Professional Development since 2004. She began as a Career Counselor and Internship Coordinator and moved to her current position of Associate Director. In addition to her administrative work at Pratt, Brynna has taught courses in the Fine Arts and Art and Design Education Departments including Internship Seminars, a Special Topics course on community based practice focusing on Bedford Stuyvesant, and Drawing into Sculpture. Outside of the classroom, she has produced seminar series, workshops, and other educational programming that focuses on the varying and complex needs of artists, educators, administrators, and entrepreneurs. Before working at Pratt she worked at Art in General as a Curatorial Assistant where she managed the submission process, developed programs, and managed artist resources. She also administered Artist Info Sessions to provide strategic career advisement to contemporary artists.
Brynna is actively invested in creating dialogue and collaboration and does so through her involvement with many on-campus groups and committees including the Interdisciplinary Committee where she is chair of a subcommittee examining resources and extensions; Pratt’s Initiative for Arts, Community and Social Change which she co-chaired for four years; and Pratt’s Environmental Coalition to help with producing the annual Green Week Celebration on campus. In 2007 she developed the Pratt Success Program and continues to manage this group of student leaders who work in the Center for Career & Professional Development. In 2009 she won the Outstanding Organization Advisor Award for her work with this program.
Brynna continues her art practice alongside her administrative and educational roles and creates projects that examine the capacity to be an artist and a citizen in contemporary global culture. She has been involved in exhibitions, projects, and interventions in Massachusetts, Vermont, and New York State as well as throughout New York City, Miami, and Venice Italy. In 2006-2007 she was awarded a fellowship at AIR Gallery.
