Artistic Discovery - the Congressional Art Competition
2014 "Proclaim Liberty" Art Competition
Each spring the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district.
The winning entry from each congressional district across the United States is displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol. The winning student from each congressional district is invited, along with one guest, to the unveiling of the exhibit and a reception in Washington, D.C. and is provided two round-trip airline tickets for the occasion.
The 2013 contest winners may be viewed on the U.S. House Congressional Art Competition website. In 2013 over 40 pieces of art from the 4th District were submitted for judging.
The deadline to submit art for the 2014 competition will be Friday, March 28, 2014. Please refer to the competition guidelines and student release form below when considering the competition.
