Director of Programs Jenifer Simon will lead a panel discussion on preparing students for resilient careers at the AICAD Student Success Conference on June 15, 2017 at Pratt Institute. Jenifer will be joined by two artists whose experiences in disasters taught them what resiliency really means.

In 2012, Brooklyn-based sculptor Rachel Beach arrived at her studio to discover it was flooded with water caused by Hurricane Sandy. In 2013, artist Maria de Los Angeles, a student at the Pratt Institute, was getting ready to show some of her 100 paintings and 300 prints for a graduate school interview when she discovered her work had been destroyed in a fire at Pratt.
