Milito and Montijo Chosen for NYSATA

High school student-artists Jessica Montijo and Stephanie Milito were chosen for the New York State Art Teachers Association’s 28th annual Legislative Student Art Exhibition. Their artwork will be displayed from March 1-14 in the Legislative Well in Albany’s Capitol Building. The Legislative Student Art Exhibition, cosponsored by New York State United Teachers, showcases New York State’s art programs.

“I’m excited to have my work on display up in Albany for this exhibit,” said Montijo.

“I was honored to be chosen to exhibit because I want to pursue the visual arts as a career,” said Milito.

“I am so proud of Jessica and Stephanie,” said their teacher, Heather Toomey. “They are really talented and always work really hard in class. They were chosen for their high quality work and creative projects.”
