This year's honorees include interior designer Nina Campbell, architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, chef Daniel Bouloud and photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. The fundraising event will dedicate proceeds to both merit- and need-based scholarships for Pratt students, 90 percent of whom rely on financial aid.

This year’s recipients join a respected coterie of previous honorees, including Laurie Anderson, Iris Apfel, Dale Chihuly, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Pete Hamill, Kim Hastreiter, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Ellsworth Kelly, Juan Montoya, Richard Meier, Takashi Murakami, Joan Rivers, Margaret Russell, Julian Schnabel, Patti Smith, Julie Taymor, James Turrell, Bruce Weber, William Wegman, Kehinde Wiley, Robert Wilson, David Yurman and Eva Zeisel.

The event will unfold at the Mandarin Oriental, beginning with a 6 p.m. cocktail reception followed by a 7 p.m. dinner and awards reception. To purchase tickets, email legends@pratt.edu.
