If you're a high school student in Maryland's U.S. Congressional District 8 and have a proclivity for canvasses and color, your work could end up displayed in the U.S. Capitol.
U.S. Rep. Chris Van Hollen is hosting his annual Congressional Art Competition. The winning entry will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year and runners-up will be displayed in Van Hollen’s congressional offices, according to a news release about the competition.
There will be a juried exhibition of about 90 of the submitted pieces, which will be on display at VisArts in Rockville from April 26- May 17.
To participate, students must complete and submit an entry form by April 13.
Artwork may be delivered to VisArts either on April 20 between 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. or April 21 between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.
