In a series of events highlighting the breadth and depth of participants’ achievements as artists and scholars, Pratt in Venice welcomed alumni as guests to La Serenissima this summer.
Pratt in Venice alumna, Cynthia S. Brenwall (PiV ‘07), has written a book, The Central Park: Original Designs for New York’s Greatest Treasure.
Pratt in Venice was honored to have a visit from an alumna of the program, Monique Rollins (PiV ‘04), back in July! During our class tour of the Baroque church, Santa Maria della Salute, Monique came by to say hello and revisit one of Venice’s most iconic monuments with us. Afterwards, she joined Diana Gisolfi, director of Pratt in Venice, for an aperitivo in order to catch up!
After Monique attended Pratt in Venice as a student in 2004, she returned to the program as Diana’s on-site assistant in 2007. In 2005, Monique graduated with an M.F.A. in Painting from Pratt Institute. She pursued her education further at Pratt, receiving an M.S. in History of Art and Design in 2006.
Monique is now a successful artist, working between New York City and Florence, Italy. She recently had an exhibition in Beijing at the Zhu Naizheng Research Center of Art.
We love having visits from alumni of the program, especially in Venice!
