HEY GUYS THIS IS IMPORTANT.

This is my school. This is what happened to my school last night. The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York had a massive fire break out last night around 2:30 am in the senior painting studios. BFA painting students who were almost completed with their thesis presentations lost ALL of their work with only weeks until senior gallery shows were scheduled to start. No one was seriously injured, luckily, but this is a devastating loss for our school’s young professionals who are just about to embark on a career, now without the fruits of four years worth of intense labor and dedication.

Here’s the New York Times article on the fire: nyti.ms/YkDmj9

Right now, our students need all the support they can get. If you have any time, money, supplies, or resources that you can donate to aid our students or help in the rebuilding efforts please contact the active dean of the art and design department, Leighton Pierce, at lpierce@pratt.edu. There is no current phone number for anyone in the administrative department due relocations after the fire, but any further help can be directed to Pratt’s president, Thomas Schutte, at  tschutte@pratt.edu.
