Prattfolio Fall 2008 "Art in Times of War Issue"
As an art and design college established to prepare creative professionals to be responsible contributors to society, Pratt has supported students in their personal search to form a response and has encouraged them to take an active role based on their beliefs. For some students, this has meant serving in the military and using their artistic skills in that capacity. Other students throughout the years have marched, petitioned, written letters, and created works of art to urge government and their fellow citizens to reconsider war. In addition, many Pratt faculty members, staff, and alumni have used their creativity to question how best to serve humanity during times of conflict. In the pages that follow, a variety of Pratt community members examine war and peace activities—past and present—and share surprisingly personal perspectives and accounts.
