Pratt in Venice was like a backstage pass to some wonderful places in Venice and the surrounding area. From the mosaic workshop at the basilica of San Marco to the restoration lab at UIA, we were able to access work spaces and watch conservators handle delicate works of art.
Pratt in Venice proved to be a refreshing experience that kept me engaged with Venetian culture and with my own art practice. The trips and tours are stripped of the fluff and filled to the brim with interesting insights. There is so much to see; the canals, the streets, the churches and the surrounding countryside all provided a stunning view and a moment of pause.
The 30th annual exhibition opens Monday, November 17th, 2014, and runs all week until November 21st in East Hall’s Second Floor Gallery on Pratt's Brooklyn campus.
