On the evening of December 5, 2013, the Art + Design Education Department of Pratt Institute hosted a gallery opening entitled Exhibiting Education. The exhibit included artwork created by students who attend the Pratt Institute, as well as artists who are supported through programs provided by AHRC New York City’s Brooklyn Day Hab. The exhibit, (currently on view in the Dumbo section of Brooklyn at Gallery 216,) is a culmination of collaborative workshops between the two groups of artists.
During the past semester the visiting artists from Brooklyn Day Hab, including Chad DeRoche, Gifford Moy, and Alexander Torres have been preparing their artwork, with support from Art Consultants, Megan Hummel and Joslyn Richardson. Below are some photos captured during the opening of the exhibition.
AHRC New York City thanks ProfessorBorinquen Gallo and the students of the Pratt Institute, as well as the staff from Brooklyn Day Hab for their work and dedication in creating the collaborative workshops, which have enabled these artists to express their creativity.
The members of Arte Moose are artists with disabilities, who founded their collective to introduce their ideas and visual creativity into the larger discourse of contemporary art.
