Stellar Month for PNCA Student
September 02, 2014
PNCA student John Summerson has had quite a month. First he was one of the prestigious Princess Grace award winners in the film category, PNCA’s third winner, receiving a significant monetary grant for his upcoming senior thesis project. Then late last week LG Electronics announced Summerson as a finalist in its Art of the Pixel new-media competition. His winning piece Painting From Life earned him $5000 as a finalist and a trip to New York City for the announcement of the grand prize by celebrity spokesperson Neil Patrick Harris. In this by invitation-only contest, PNCA was one of only a handful of art schools selected for student submissions.
