Mountain View Jr. Sr. HS PR – WVIA to honor Mountain View students as upcoming Artists of the Week

Mountain View is proud to announce that Denise Vonada (left) and Briana Frankovsky (right) have been honored by being named “WVIA Artists of the Week”.


Denise Vonada has been named the WVIA Performing Artist of the Week and Briana Frankovsky has been named the WVIA Visual Artist of the Week for the week of Sunday, February 4, 2018 through Saturday, February 10, 2018.

This campaign is designed to call attention to high school students who have excelled in the study of the arts. The partnering high school selects two students, one visual artist and one performing artist, who are then interviewed at the WVIA Public Media studios for a digital video vignette. The “Artist of the Week” vignette showcases the student, high school, and school district and salutes them for their artistic achievement. The students will be featured across all WVIA television, radio and digital platforms for one week and the accompanying vignette will be available to watch on and for one year. Selected artists will then be in the running to compete for “WVIA Artist of the Year”, which is announced in May.

WVIA Public Media is a catalyst, convener, and educator, using media, partnerships, powerful ideas and programs to improve lives and advance the best attributes of an enlightened society.
