I wanted to share an opportunity for San Diego high school
students to have their artwork featured in the United States Capitol. The 2018 Congressional
Art Competition is underway and I am encouraging students to enter.
As a former board member of the Museum of Contemporary Art
San Diego and a leader in the Murals of La Jolla effort, I know supporting San Diego's thriving art scene means not only investing in our leading art institutions, but also emerging artists.
Students are encouraged to create original artwork according to the following guidelines:
Entries can be no larger than 26” x 26” x 4” when framed. Artwork must be original in concept, design, and execution.
Artwork may be:
- Paintings: oil, acrylics, watercolor, etc.
- Drawings: colored pencil, pencil, ink, marker,
pastels, charcoal (It is recommended that charcoal and pastel drawings be
- Prints: lithographs, silk screen, block prints
- Mixed Media: use of more than two mediums such
as pencil, ink, watercolor, etc.
- Collages (must be two dimensional)
- Computer-generated art
For questions, please contact my San Diego office at 858-455-5550. I look forward to seeing this year's submissions.
