Pratt Sculptures Do Dallas

The leafy campus of Pratt Institute in leafy Clinton Hill, Brooklyn contains many large scale sculptures that apparently rotate throughout the leafy area, as I had seen a few before at the not so leafy Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria.
The library, now located in the leafy area behind the giant white head, opened in 1888 and was one of the first public libraries in the U.S. but is better known for it's part as the setting of "the spanking scene" of Debbie Does Dallas. I claim no firsthand knowledge of said scene. For the youngsters out there, a library is like a combination of and wikipedia.
If you blink your eyes real fast you can almost visualize famous Pratt alumni Robert Redford and Rob Zombie walking across the leafy campus in outfits designed by fellow alum Betsey Johnson. Almost.
