We have a vibrant, socially-engaged, generous and lively community!
The department holds many discussions around contemporary issues and collaborates with arts organizations to ensure that we reach beyond our gates to actively participate in the cultural life of the broader national and international community.
Two initiatives that enable us to this are PROJECT THIRD and PIE.
PROJECT THIRD is a ten-week summer residency where we invite artists/collaborative groups whose community work is research oriented and/or motivated by the desire to instigate social change, to inhabit one of our gallery spaces. This enables us to create aligned programming and connect their work to our students.
PIE (Pratt Institute Editions) works with artists and alumni to produce collaborative and limited edition prints in collaboration with our students. We are constantly thinking of innovative ways to make sure that we are part of the cultural conversation and actively include students in developing these initiatives.
