WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-AR) announced the Fourth District winners of the 2021 Congressional Art Competition. First place winner Danielle Luyet’s work, titled “Faces of America,” will be displayed in the main hallway between the Cannon House Office Building and the U.S. Capitol for the year.
“I look forward the Congressional Art Competition every year,” said Rep. Westerman. “It is an incredible opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity of our high school students, and I am blown away by these students’ hard work. Members, staff, and visitors will have the pleasure of viewing Danielle’s work every day as they walk the halls of Congress. Thank you to everyone who participated.”
Each spring, a nationwide high school visual art competition is sponsored by members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent of our nation’s youth, including those in the Fourth Congressional District.
