Congressional Institute to Sponsor 2013 Congressional Art Competition

2013_CAC_Logo (web)The annual Congressional Art Competition allows high school students from across the country to compete with their peers for the chance to have their works of art displayed in in the U.S. Capitol complex. Each Member of the House of Representatives may choose to participate in the program. Members of Congress, staff, and hundreds of visitors from all around the world pass by the exhibit daily. The display is one of the highlights of Capitol tours, and the staff members who guide guests are sure to point out their district’s piece.

Although each Member is responsible for holding his or her own competition, each year, two Representatives serve as Co-Chairs for the Congressional Art Competition. The Co-Chairmanship is bipartisan, and the Members serve a one-year term. These Members act as liaisons to their colleagues, staff and other House officials that assist in producing the exhibit. They will also welcome the winning students to Washington at a reception in June. The Co-Chairs for the 2013 Congressional Art Competition are Representative Robert Aderholt (R-AL) and Representative Suzanne Bonamici (D-OR).

The Congressional Art Competition culminates in receptions for the winners in June. Each winner is invited to a reception where they can meet with others from across the country. Mark Strand, who is the President of the Congressional Institute, and the Competition’s two Co-Chairs welcome the winners at a program held at the Capitol Visitor Center. The Co-Chairs each select an artist or a member of the artistic community from their districts to speak to the winners. While these speakers may vary in style and substance, the theme of their presentation is usually about their experiences as a professional artist.

Last year, over 400 Members of Congress participated, and it is expected that a record number will participate again this year. Since the Competition’s founding in 1982, an estimated 700,000 students have entered artwork in district competitions in all fifty states and most territories. There is no “overall” or “national” winner.

You can find more information about the Congressional Art Competition by clicking on your Representative’s link below. Some Members of Congress did not have information about this year’s Congressional Art Competition on their website, and some may have more up-to-date information than what is listed. Additionally, the submission deadlines for some districts have already passed. We are not responsible for the content posted on Members’ web pages, so please contact your Representative’s office for the most recent information.
