2014 Congressional Art Competition Reception
I was delighted to host a reception for the 2014 Congressional High School Art Competition, which was established by Congress as a part of the Artistic Discovery Program.
This year proved to be a very close competition as my office received some truly remarkable artwork from eight different high schools in the 33rd Congressional district. Our distinguished panel of judges included Kim Kovacs, Executive Director, Federal Relations at UCLA, Peter DeMaria, member of the Manhattan Beach Cultural Arts Commission and Professor of Architecture at the CSULB School of Design, and Han Dai-Yu, Associate Professor of Studio Arts at LMU.
Congratulations to this year’s winners:
1st place – Ihwa Choi, 11th grade at Palos Verdes High School
2nd place – Joseph Lee, 11th grade at West High School
3rd place – Sarah Doo, 11th grade at Rancho Del Mar High School
Honorable Mention – Cathy Lee, 11th grade at South High School
Thank you to all of the students, art teachers, and families who participated in this year’s event as well as the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center and the City of Manhattan Beach for making this possible.
