FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Celebrate High School Artists at your Neville Museum!
Green Bay, WI---April 28, 2014---An Artistic Discovery will be on display at the Neville Public Museum on April 26, 2014 and runs through May 25, 2014. This exhibition features 47 works of art produced by high school students in Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District, currently represented by Congressman Reid Ribble. Representative High Schools include: Appleton (East and West), Ashwaubenon, Bay Port, De Pere (East and West), Kaukauna, Luxemburg-Casco, Notre Dame, Oconto, Renaissance School for the Arts, Sevastopol and Xavier High School. The artwork covers a range of media and subject matter, which collectively display diverse levels of talent and exceptional creativity.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors this nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries.
This year’s First Place winner is Samantha Rumbuc from Appleton West High School for her photograph entitled Romeo and Juliet. First runner-up is Caley Buck from Bay Port High School for her colored pencil and acrylic Sea Shell Still Life. Second runner-up is Victoria Koch from Notre Dame Academy for her balsa foam and acrylic Peaceful Foes. Third runner-up is Libby Gill from Xavier High School for her painting entitled The Vision of Africa.
Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
