Rep. Jason Crow Announces Congressional Art Competition Winners
Rep. Jason Crow, his wife Deserai, and a panel of local artists have selected six pieces of artwork by high school students from Colorado’s 6th district to be displayed both in the U.S. Capitol and Crow’s district office.
“The dedication and skill on display in these pieces is truly exceptional and made it no easy task to select the winners,” said Crow. “Each of the 35 entries demonstrated the artist’s creativity and hard work, and I look forward to sharing their art in the Capitol and our district office.”
The first-place winner’s artwork will be hung in the United States Capitol’s Cannon Tunnel with the other winners from across the country. The second and third place winners as well as the three honorable mentions will be displayed in the lobby of the Congressman’s district office.
Every spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a national high school visual art competition “An Artistic Discovery”, to recognize and encourage artistic talent throughout the nation in each congressional district. Since the beginning of the competition in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated, with the winning pieces displayed in the U.S. Capitol.
The winners are as follows:
1st place: Repeated History by Randy Whited
2nd place: Pool of Ponder by Neena Saragih
3rd place: An Eyeball in the Hand Is Worth Two in the Head by Graves Broderick
