The Pratt Institute Pops Up At Brooklyn's Dekalb Market This Summer

This summer, the Pratt Institute is presenting a season-long marathon of exhibitions, shows, and sales at Brooklyn Dekalb Market. Called Pratt Pop-Up!, this rotating display features works by the Institute's students and alumni, and runs every week from Tuesday through Sunday, 11am-6pm.

Here is the Pratt Pop-Up! summer lineup:

Pratt Fine Arts Jewelry
Jewelry designs from four artists from Pratt's Class of 2012
Now through June 12, 2012

Dargelos Bicycle Accessories
Functional and fashionable bike accessories for the bike commuter
June 13-July 9, 2012

Holstee, Designing Hope, and Rubina Accessories
Sustainable home furnishing designs and fashion accessories made by Indian artisans
July 9-August 6, 2012

In addition to offering visitors some awesome art and designs, Pratt Pop-Up! also provides its students with invaluable experience in operating a gallery space -- the Pop-Up's interior was even constructed by Pratt's industrial design program. Professor Robert Langhorn, who headed the student team, stated:

“We wanted to transform slatwall, the mundane store display material, into an architectural element. Serious attention was paid to every detail and the small space has been executed brilliantly by the team.”

From floor to ceiling, and the artwork in between, this is one creative collaboration worth checking out.
