AARTHI AND CONGRESS

Congressional Art Competition

Aarthi Muthukumar, a student of Oam Studios Art Academy, had the honor of meeting U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell’s at the annual Congressional Art Competition and has been selected by Rep. Eric Swalwell to place her art work in his Washington D.C. office.

 

She and other high school art students were honored by Swalwell at a reception on May 8th, 2017 at the Hayward Area Historical Society.

 

Swalwell said in a statement. “I’m so glad to be able to share these amazing works at the Capitol and in my office.”

 

The panel of local judges, artists and business owners in Rep. Swalwell’s district, exhibit art through and collaborate with the Hayward Arts Council. They reviewed the dozens of paintings, drawings, collages, photographs and other artworks before awarding placements to the finalists.

 

The art competition is held annually by members of Congress across the country to spotlight high school artists in their district, with winners’ works being displayed at the U.S. Capitol.

 

In addition to Pleasanton and San Ramon, the 15th Congressional District, includes Dublin, Livermore, Union City, parts of Fremont, and the unincorporated areas of Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Sunol, Ashland, Cherryland and Fairview.

CONGRESSIONAL ART COMPETITION

Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.

 

Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
