Congressional Art Contest
Ashley Klein Wins the Congressional Art Award!
Rosenblatt High School at Donna Klein Jewish Academy is happy to announce that a painting by high school junior Ashley Klein has won first place in the congressional art contest in Congresswoman Lois Frankel’s district.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
Students submitted entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. First place winners are recognized in their district at a gallery show where their work is exhibited. They then receive two plane tickets to attend the annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
Ashley’s painting; entitled “Late Afternoon” is part of a series of twelve canvases that she completed for her AP portfolio this year. It was exhibited on Friday, May 5th,in the Ocean breeze room at Old School Square in Delray Beach.
