MMI Preparatory School seniors Garrett Kost and Danielle Pileggi will be featured on WVIA-TV Artist of the Week segments and are among the finalists for the WVIA Artist of the Year Award.
Garrett Kost and Danielle Pileggi visited the WVIA studios in Pittston to record a one-minute Artist of the Week piece that will appear on WVIA-TV the week of Jan. 15-21 and online at wvia.org for a year.
Danielle Pileggi, the daughter of Daniel and Sandra Pileggi of Albrightsville, was nominated in the visual arts category. She submitted works entitled Snapple King, which was designed on Snapple caps; Self- Anatomy for the anatomy painting; Lone Wolf for her print making piece; Life and Death for her flower piece and Flower for her mandala.
The Artist of the Week program features two students, one each in visual and performing arts, from high schools throughout northeast and central Pennsylvania who have demonstrated exceptional achievement in visual arts, theatre, music or dance. The students are then entered in the running for the Artist of the Year award which is announced during WVIA’s Scholastic Achievement Awards Show in May.
The competition is open to students in grades 10 through 12.
