Radio City Music Hall has recently become available for Commencement 2014, and the ceremony will no longer be held at Madison Square Garden.
The return of Pratt’s Commencement to Radio City Music Hall on May 16 will mark the fifth time in six years that the ceremony will be held at the iconic venue. The occasion will celebrate the achievements and confer the degrees of the 1,050 graduating students who will be participating in the ceremony.
The New York Times architecture critic, author, and acclaimed pianist Michael Kimmelman will deliver the commencement address. Kimmelman, Brooklyn Museum Director Arnold Lehman, multi-media artist Yoko Ono, and designer Karim Rashid will receive honorary degrees. Associate Professor of Humanities and Media Studies Ellery Washington will receive the Pratt Institute Distinguished Teacher Award.
For anyone who cannot attend the ceremony, commencement will be streamed live on the homepage of pratt.edu. Join in the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #PrattGrad14.
