Dear Friend,

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.

2018 Art Competition FINAL


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.

How to Enter

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 fixed.)
  • 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
  • Photographs

Art Examples

Visit my website for more details and a complete list of rules and regulations.


Artwork must be dropped off at our San Diego office by Wednesday, April 25th at 4 p.m.

Get directions to our office here.

For questions, please contact my San Diego office at 858-455-5550. I look forward to seeing this year's submissions.
