PrattMWP Sculpture and Integrated Practices Students Enjoy Access to World-Class Facilities, Programs, and Collections

Sculpture at PrattMWP is a dynamic investigation of various mediums, techniques and ideas, building a rich vocabulary to explore new concepts throughout the core studio and elective courses. Our student sculpture artists have access to the school’s wood, metal, clay, and plaster fabrication studios to develop new approaches in material usage and conceptual exploration.

Ceramics at PrattMWP is a special experience allowing art students to work in one of the premier ceramic studios in Central New York. Students in their sophomore year are introduced to various methods of working clay into objects both sculptural and functional. In addition to the our extensive indoor kilns, PrattMWP’s outside kiln yard affords students the opportunity to experience or assist in wood, salt, raku, and downdraft firings. After your sophomore year, students continue their studies at Pratt Brooklyn’s campus and work in their extensive indoor facility capable of producing large-scale work as well as production work.

Within walking distance of PrattMWP is Sculpture Space, a highly acclaimed and extremely selective artist-in-residence program that attracts sculptors from all over the world – both as program applicants and as visitors for its unique events. This proximity affords our sculpture students with rare opportunities to view the work progress and methods of some of the world’s most talented up-and-coming sculptors.

Sculpture majors will continue their pursuits at the Brooklyn campus after their sophomore year building upon our core courses and culminating their experience with a BFA Thesis exhibition on the Pratt Campus that is open to the public.

The entire Brooklyn campus is home to the Pratt Sculpture Park, the largest in New York City, and has featured sculptures by such artists as Richard Serra, Donald Lipski, and Mark di Suvero. The Pratt Sculpture Park is curated by Professor David Weinrib and was recognized as one of the 10 best college and university campus art collections in the country by Public Art Review.


PrattMWP boasts one of the greatest academic art programs and learning environments in the northeast.
