Pratt Alumni Painters exhibition at Pratt Manhattan Gallery

Pratt Institute
Lisa Sanditz, Facebook Server Farm II, 2012. Oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches.

The work of Pratt alumni has been displayed at many prominent New York museums, including The Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum, as well as at museums and galleries internationally. This exhibition, curated by Nick Battis, Director of Exhibitions, Pratt Institute, will be celebrated with an opening reception on Thursday, June 7 from 7 to 9pm.

“The mantra ‘painting is dead’ has been echoed through art circles for several decades now,” said curator Nick Battis. “This exhibition is a testament to the talents of our alumni, but it also reinforces that painting continues to be a viable medium,” he added.
