Photographer Allen Pierre, who graduated Kingsborough in 2011, had one of his photographs published in the print and online versions of The New York Times in July 2019.  Pierre, a street photographer whose work was featured at the Kingsborough Art Museum in 2017, had documented the festivities at the Brownsville Old Timers Day block party  shortly before a gang-related shooting brought havoc to this traditionally peaceful event

Antonio Pulgarin, who studied at Kingsborough in 2008-2009, recently had his work on view at the Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM).  His exhibition Here I Stand, Like the Sun that Frightens the Cold, featured seventeen photo-collage works that address issues of gender, sexual orientation, nationalism, and the constructions of masculinity.  During the run of the show he was featured in The Advocate, as well was the subject of an in-depth interview  on The Visura Media Blog.  Pulgarin also gave an Artist’s Talk on December 3, 2019 at the Kingsborough Art Museum.

Over the summer current Fine Arts student Alexander Reynoso was commissioned to create a yarnbombing project on four trees outside the LBGT Center in Manhattan.  The colorful yarn wrappings represent varieties of the Pride flag, and were a part of the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.  Other examples of Reynoso’s work can be seen on his website, https://www.alexcreates.us.
