First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone that donated to this fund! I and the other Pratt Painters just had their thesis show after an absolutely crazy semester. We are so happy to have been able to get back to work and will continue to have access to our new studios over the summer.
Now for some even more exciting news! The money raised from this fund is being used to fund a group show for the painters at the famous Painting Center at the beginning of August! More info about the name and the opening is on the way. We are incredibly excited for this opportunity. It is all thanks to everyone who gave to this fund. Thank you so much for helping us take advantage of this major opportunity!
We have raised more than $2,000! This is truly incredible. However, we still have a long way to go from reaching our goal!! Please don’t forget to share this link with your family and friends. More than 20 students lost their studios and all of them can use your help.
More fantastic news — the students of the 6th floor have begun making an artist book which will be available for order before the end of the semester!
And even MORE good news — this Thursday, the fine arts students of the Parsons school in New York will be putting up a show for us! Both Pratt painting and drawing seniors will be in the show alongside Parsons seniors. Many of the Parsons students will have their works for sale, and the funds made from the show will be donated back to Pratt. Early bidding begins at 6, and the open silent auction will be from 7-9 pm on Thursday March 7th. The show is at 25 East 13th street in the NRM Gallery, Fine Arts (4th Floor).

We are so excited to already have more than $500 on our very first day of the campaign! Thank you to all who have shared our video and especially to those who have already made contributions.
