President Thomas F. Schutte addresses guests in the Myrtle Hall Admissions Gallery. Members of Pratt’s Board of Trustees and Pratt Leadership Societies celebrated the opening of Myrtle Hall, Pratt’s new 120,000-square foot green building, on March 30 by convening for a private tour given by the building’s design architect, Jack Esterson (B. Arch. ’75). Among the 50 attendees were Board Chair Mike Pratt, and Trustees Bruce Gitlin, David Marquis, and Marc Rosen (M.F.A. ’70).

L-R: Victor Carnuccio (B.F.A. Art and Design ’79), Vice President of Institutional Advancement Todd Galitz, and Trustee Marc Rosen (M.F.A. ’70)  These loyal supporters of the Institute also enjoyed a talk by Digital Arts Chair Peter Patchen in the new Digital Arts Gallery. The tour highlighted Myrtle Hall’s environmentally sustainable design, introduced the new Admissions Gallery, and showed Pratt alumni, faculty, staff, and student work on display throughout the building.

A swipe of the Pratt ID card at the Security Desk on the first floor enables members of the Pratt community to gain an insider’s view of Myrtle Hall, and all are welcome.
