Kennedy Opens Student Art Competition

The deadline to submit artwork to Kennedy's Newton office is April 19.

Do you think your artwork is good enough to hang in the U.S. Capitol?

U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy III, whose district includes Attleboro, announced last week his office is participating in the annual Congressional Art Competition, which is a high school visual arts contest. 

Now through April 19, high school students in the 4th Congressional District can submit paintings, drawings, collages, computer-generated art, prints, mixed media and photography pieces to Kennedy's office on Crafts Street in Newton.

An independent arts panel that includes Attleboro Arts Museum Executive Director Mim Fawcett will select a finalist for each media category. The panel will then choose a "Best in Show" piece from those finalists.

The "Best in Show" piece from the 4th District will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C. for one year. 

"The Congressional Art Competition is a fantastic opportunity for students across the 4th District to showcase their artistic talent," said Kennedy, according to a press release. "We are lucky to have a very accomplished group of local arts professionals serve as panelists for the competition."
