Pratt Institute will present Legends 2015, an annual scholarship benefit honoring art and design professionals whose works have helped shape the cultural landscape.

The event will be held Oct. 29 at the Mandarin Oriental in New York. The gala will begin at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception followed by a 7 p.m. dinner and awards ceremony. Legends 2015 raises funds for merit- and need-based scholarships, as 90 percent of Pratt students receive financial aid to pursue their education.

The honorees are Daniel Boulud, chef and owner of 16 restaurants, including Daniel and Café Boulud, and the Feast & Fêtes catering company; interior designer Nina Campbell; photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, and architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien.

Previous Legends Award recipients have included Laurie Anderson, Iris Apfel, Dale Chihuly, Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs, Bruce Weber and David Yurman.
