2019 Congressional Art Competition
Congressman Thomas Massie is inviting students from the 4th Congressional District to participate in the 2019 Congressional Art Competition.
Each spring, Members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor The Artistic Discovery Contest, a nation-wide high school arts competition, to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.
The Artistic Discovery Contest is open to all high school students in the 4th District. The over-all winner of our district's competition will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. The exhibit in Washington will also include artwork from other contest winners nation-wide.
Interested students should submit one original piece of two-dimensional work, which should be no bigger than 26” x 26” x 4” when framed. Entries can be dropped off at Congressman Massie’s office in Crescent Springs.
Address: 541 Buttermilk Pike, Ste 208.
Crescent Springs, KY 41017.
Accepted mediums for the two-dimensional artwork are as follows:
• Paintings: oil, acrylics, watercolor, etc.
• Drawings: colored pencil, pencil, ink, marker, pastels, charcoal (It is recommended that charcoal and pastel drawings be fixed.)
• Prints: lithographs, silkscreen, block prints
• Mixed Media: use of more than two mediums such as pencil, ink, watercolor, etc.
• Collages (must be two dimensional)
• Computer-generated art
All entries must be an original in concept, design and execution.
Entries for the Congressional Art Competition can be submitted between now and April 5th, 2019.
The winner will receive two round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C. for the unveiling of their work, which will hang in the Capitol complex for the next year.
The competition is open only to high school students who reside in the Kentucky 4th Congressional District or who are eligible to attend public high school in that district. Students can find out which congressional district their home or school is in at https://www.house.gov/representatives/find/.
