Each year, the Orange County Arts Council proudly recognizes individuals, organizations, and corporations who have made outstanding contributions to the arts in the county. After reviewing many applicants, the panel of judges was impressed with Daniel’s extensive and diverse portfolio in painting, sculpture, set design, special effect makeup and photography. This is the ninth year that the Orange County Arts Council has recognized outstanding artists and students within Orange County. In past years, 2015 Warwick graduate Lexie Zarow and 2010 Warwick graduate Sara Giarratano also received this prestigious award.
