As if you needed further proof that Pratt Institute is an art and design education powerhouse, the Brooklyn institution has announced the five ultra-accomplished alumni that will be honored next month for their exceptional achievements since graduating. Get a load of this group: Arem Duplessis, design director for The New York Times Magazine; artist Ik-Joong Kang; designer Ted Muehling; photographer Sylvia Plachy; and Annabelle Selldorf, founder and principal of Selldorf Architects. They’ll receive their awards at a March 9 luncheon at The Modern (designed by a Pratt alum, natch), where we have a feeling that pastry chef Marc Aumont—a skilled sugar artist and chocolate sculptor—will whip up a special something to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the school’s founding, ideally served with a generous scoop of his salted butter-caramel ice cream.
