Pocan Announces Congressional Art Competition
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Representative Mark Pocan (WI-02) today announced that his office is accepting submissions for the Congressional Art Competition, a high school visual arts contest that showcases the best artwork from across the country. The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 18th.
“I am excited for this opportunity to recognize the immense talent of our young artists across the second district,” Representative Pocan said about the Congressional Art Competition. “I encourage all young artists in the area to submit their work for consideration.”
Representative Pocan invites students to submit their original artwork in the following categories: paintings, drawings, collage, prints, mixed media, computer-generated art, and photography.
A panel of judges will select the winning pieces. The grand prize winner will be flown to Washington, D.C. in June for a reception honoring his or her artwork, which will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year. The other three finalists will have their artwork displayed in the Congressman’s D.C. and district offices.
The artwork may be no larger than 28” x 28” x 4”, including the frame. The artwork must also be dropped off at Representative Pocan’s Madison office, 10 East Doty Street Suite 405, by April 18th. More information on the Congressional Art Competition is available on the Congressman’s website. The art will be displayed from Monday, April 21st to Friday, April 25th in the Verona Public Library.
