Celebrating Essential Workers on Pratt’s Campus

Pratt’s Brooklyn and Manhattan campuses closed temporarily in late March in response to COVID-19. Only essential employees have been permitted access, and a small team of dedicated Pratt Facilities and Public Safety personnel continues daily to look after our campuses until they can be reopened once again. Additional essential staff members from finance, mail service, residential life, and shop management have visited campus regularly to maintain services. 

Visiting Assistant Professor in Photography Andy Todd, who comes to campus once a week to maintain the photography labs, shot the following series of images of some of Pratt’s essential staff at work on the Brooklyn campus. Pratt celebrates and thanks them and all of our essential staff members.
