The Academy students Kathryn Ward, Kendelle, Cooper and Emma Fringuelli’s artwork was accepted and showcased at the 2017 Endicott College’s Superstar Art Competition. The girls incredible works were displayed at Walter J. Manninen Center for the Arts for the month of March. On March 8th, Endicott hosted an Award ceremony and reception to recognize the noteworthy high school artists. While all of The Academy’s artwork stood out from many talented student pieces, Kendelle’s “Artic Thaw” received The Dean’s Choice Award.

High School students should know the full economic impact of the arts and the millions of arts-related jobs. According to Americans for the Arts, “Nationally, the arts generated $135 billion of economic activity—and supports 4.13 million full-time jobs and generates over $86.68 billion in resident household income.” said Dean Mark Towner, School of Visual and Performing Arts, Endicott College.
While art competitions are one small step into a larger journey through the arts, our students showed academic and artistic success in the 2017 Endicott College Superstar Art Competition. Congratulations to all!
