A NY1 news segment previewed the fine arts thesis exhibition, Flameproof, which includes work by drawing and painting students, all of whom were affected to various degrees by the fire at Pratt earlier this year. Pratt Provost Peter Barna was interviewed, as were two graduating seniors whose work is included in the exhibition. Flameproof, which is free and open to the public, will display 100 drawings and paintings produced by 44 undergraduate students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program before and after the fire that occurred in Pratt's historic Main Building on February 15, 2013. The exhibition is made possible, in part, by Larry Gagosian, who worked closely with Pratt Institute President Thomas F. Schutte and Aby Rosen of RFR Holdings to secure the exhibition space. Trustee Emeritus and alumnus Bruce Newman provided funding to produce this year’s senior thesis show.
