Creative Momentum Campaign

Pratt has come a long way in the last decade! Together, deft hands and gifted minds forged a masterpiece in the making, a dynamic organization that may never be finished growing, but is securely positioned for its next big leap.

Read more about our successes and growth over the past several years in our 10-year report here.

Building on its success, Pratt looks ahead to the next ten years with great confidence and high expectations. With the pandemic nearly in the rear view, thirst for creative community and the joys of artmaking are at an all-time high. The Creative Momentum Campaign will build capacity to meet this growing need, while also preparing Pratt for the promise of dynamic new leadership,
refreshed vision, and deeper, long-term impact.

Mission: to foster a creative, inclusive art-making community, providing access to quality education and professionally equipped studios for everyone. We promote the joy and transformative power of art and actively support the development of visual artists.

· A nurturing environment for new leadership to thrive
