Rep. André Carson Now Accepting Submissions for 2012 Congressional Art Competition
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman André Carson today announced that his office is now accepting submissions for the 2012 Congressional Art Competition. The competition, entitled “An Artistic Discovery”, highlights the artwork of high school students in Indiana’s 7th Congressional District, with the winning piece being displayed at the United States Capitol Building.
“Indiana’s 7th District is filled with incredibly talented young people,” Congressman Carson said. “This competition brings their work to the forefront and offers an opportunity to have their talents on display in our nation’s capital.”
This annual competition is open to local high school students and offers them an opportunity to be recognized for their artistic achievement. Students are encouraged to submit original artwork such as paintings, drawings, collages, prints, computer-generated art and photography. Once submitted, a local panel of qualified judges will select one piece of artwork that will be sent to Washington, D.C. This artwork will represent the 7th Congressional District of Indiana and will hang in the United States Capitol for the entire year.
The first place winner will also be invited to Washington, D.C. to attend a reception honoring artists from Congressional Districts across the country.
