Students in Pratt's graduate digital arts program engage with the creation of artwork using digital technologies, and study in one of three areas: digital animation and motion arts, interactive arts, and digital imaging. Within the context of new media, students use critical thinking, creative problem solving, technical facility and conceptual skills to develop a sophisticated body of work.
A public reception will take place Tuesday, June 7 from 6 to 8 PM.
