Photography professor Greta Pratt was the cover, feature story in the June 10 “Daily Break” section of The Virginian-Pilot. The article profiles Pratt and her work, particularly her ongoing “Flag A Day” project.
She is also featured in the exhibition The Old, Weird America at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas. The Old, Weird America is the first museum exhibition to explore the widespread resurgence of folk imagery and history in American contemporary art. The exhibition illustrates the relevance and appeal of folklore to contemporary artists, as well as the genre’s power to illuminate ingrained cultural forces and overlooked histories. The exhibition is accompanied by a 200-page fully-illustrated catalog and runs through July 20.
Pratt is also included in Portraying Lincoln: Man of Many Faces at the Madden Arts Center in Decatur, Illinois. The national touring exhibition features 40 impressive works by nearly 50 artists, dating from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. The exhibit portrays Lincoln in a broader manner than ever before attempted, allowing his legacy to be understood in a new and unique way. DAAC presents the exhibit from June 5 – July 31.
