Live Horses Model on Brooklyn Campus

Students with sketchbooks and cameras crowded around Gracie, a Welsh pony, in the Sculpture Park at the Brooklyn campus for a live horse modeling session. For more than a decade, the annual event has been organized by Film/Video and Photography Professor Sarah van Ouwerkerk, to give students the chance to draw, paint, film, or photograph live horses from various angles. Gracie was accompanied by trainer Ben Goldberg (pictured) and Brando, a thoroughbred horse. The horses attracted students from many programs. Gracie, Brando, and Goldberg made their trek to Pratt from Fair Hill Farm in Tyler Hill, Pennsylvania.
