“The SCALA show was an astounding experience,” said Desiderio, who attends Joy Taylor’s photography class. “I was honored to be chosen and I thoroughly enjoyed being able to see the perspectives of each contestant. I am proud to have received this opportunity.”

Cornell, who is enrolled in Heather Toomey’s electronic illustration class, said, “It was an honor to be chosen for the exhibition, and with my new experiences in digital arts, I am able to express myself more every day.”

“I am so proud of Hailee for her work in electronic illustration,” said Toomey. “She is an excellent student and exceptional artist. She deserves the honor of being chosen for the SCALA show and have her artwork hung with the best art students around Long Island.”
