Postponed: 2020 Rowena Reed Kostellow Awards

March 26, 2020 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Due to recent health advisories from New York City and State, the Rowena Reed Kostellow Award Ceremony has been postponed to a later date.

This was a difficult decision to make, but we prioritize the health, well-being, and safety of our community above all else.

We look forward to sharing a new date with you, so we can celebrate this year’s Rowena Reed Kostellow honorees and students. We’ll keep you updated as these plans develop and thank you for your continued support of the Rowena Reed Kostellow Fund. In anticipation of our annual celebration, you may make a donation at:

The Rowena Reed Kostellow Fund at Pratt was organized after Rowena Reed Kostellow’s death in 1988 to help continue her teachings by supporting scholarships, publishing, and programs. Kostellow, with her husband Alexander Kostellow, and Donald Dohner, created Pratt’s Industrial Design program based on abstract design applied to form, function, and industry. The educational system through analysis of abstract visual relationships is valid for all forms of expression: architecture, graphic design, and art. The program has become the foundation of many courses around the world.
