Mark Pilato

(814) 357-5249

Mark has been a sculptor for as long as he can remember, supported and inspired by family and friends. His mother and father (both also artists) taught that art is about process—from an idea all the way to a finished piece. Mark is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and currently artist-in-residence at the C. Barton McCann School of Art. His most recent monumental sculpture, “Legacy,” (right image) stands on the corner of Beaver and Hetzel in State College, PA. Many hands went into its creation; like much of Mark’s work, it emphasizes his philosophy of community and sharing.
