Introducing PBS39's 2017 Artists of the Month

Posted by Gerard Longo on

The submissions have been collected, the votes have been tallied, and we are ready to announce the 2017 winners of the PBS39 Artist of the Month contest, sponsored by The Provident Bank Foundation.

Once again, we are blown away by the talent of the students in our region. From visual artists to the performers among us, the Greater Lehigh Valley is rich with creatively inclined students, and it is our honor and privilege to showcase their work.

In fact, we had trouble narrowing it down to 12. We had a tie during the selection process, so we added an extra slot. Here’s our Baker’s Dozen of artists for 2017!
