Congratulations to all of our graduating students!

As many have commented, the quality of thesis shows this year was truly exceptional. We are so proud of all that you have accomplished! It’s sad to see you leave, but we are in no doubt that you are moving on to exciting new adventures and will excel at whatever awaits you. Please stay in touch via our active Fine Arts alumni group! 

Many thanks to all of the faculty, staff, and technicians who have worked so hard to support all of our students this year, and who make Pratt Fine Arts the vibrant center for creative excellence that it is.

As this is the end of my first year as Chair, I¹d also like to thank everyone for the generosity and warmth with which you have welcomed me into the Fine Arts community. I am grateful for all of the goodwill and support that you have extended and look forward to many collaborative years ahead.

Have a fabulous summer everyone!
