Each fall, the program hosts an annual exhibition on the Brooklyn campus. The exhibition showcases the work of the summer’s Pratt in Venice participants, featuring all media including painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional objects, as well as advanced research projects done by Pratt in Venice students enrolled in the Materials & Techniques course.

Current students donate artworks in the exhibition to be part of a silent auction; visitors to the gallery can purchase original works of art by Pratt in Venice students and support the program. All proceeds from the silent auction directly fund Pratt in Venice scholarships for the following year.

The 32nd exhibition opened Monday, October 24th, 2016 and ran all week through Friday, October 28th, in East Hall’s Second Floor Gallery on Pratt's Brooklyn campus. Featuring work from 2016's participants, the exhibition was curated by studio faculty Chris Wright and Jennifer Melby.

At the opening, there was a slideshow of photos from this year’s program, a silent auction for the works to benefit the scholarship fund, and a chance to meet and mingle with alumni and faculty.
