Pratt Presents: A Creative Conversation With Kadir Nelson

Type = ArtScans RGB : Gamma = 2.000

This year’s Alumni Day and Reunion will include a Pratt Presents presentation featuring author, painter, illustrator, and alumni Kadir Nelson.

This event will take place from 4-5 PM Saturday, September 17th on the Brooklyn Campus in Memorial Hall Auditorium. Although the event is free and open to the public, it does require a reservation.

As stated on the event page: Nelson’s primarily figurative paintings focus on historical narratives and heroic subjects in American culture, and are often informed by the work of Old Masters. His sumptuous settings and characters, rich palette, and realistic, yet painterly technique speak to both modern urban realism and masterly works of turn-of-the century American painters.

For more information about the talk, see the event page on the Pratt website. To learn more about Kadir Nelson and his work, visit his website, here.
