What is Pratt Shows?

Pratt Shows are public exhibitions and presentations by Pratt Institute’s graduating classes. Representing years of research, exploration, critical thinking, creative inquiry, problem-solving, growth, production, practice, and accomplishment, the shows celebrate student work leading up to Commencement in May.

The highly anticipated shows attract a wide audience from New York City’s diverse art and design communities and beyond. Pratt Shows provide students the opportunity to professionally exhibit their work, connecting Pratt talent to industry professionals and advancing new ideas in more than 30 academic fields within architecture, art, design, information, and the liberal arts and sciences. 

Due to COVID-19 Pratt Shows will be fully online only this year. Students, faculty and staff have worked hard to create exhibitions and presentations showcasing students’ work that can be explored through this website. 

In an effort to connect Pratt Shows to a broader design community, Pratt partners with NYCxDesign—a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for NYC’s design sector, both locally and internationally.

Pratt Shows represents a collaboration between the Pratt Communications and Marketing division and the Office of the Provost, working closely with each school.
