Washington, DC – Tomorrow, Tuesday May 22nd, 2012, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will visit North Fayette High School to recognize the 2012 winner of the Iowa First District Congressional Art Competition, Kelsey Feldman.

The Congressional Art Competition, first held in 1982, is a nationwide high school arts competition sponsored by the US House of Representatives.  One winning piece of artwork from each House district is selected to be displayed in the Cannon Tunnel of the US Capitol Building in Washington for the following year.  In addition to having her artwork displayed in the Capitol, Feldman will receive two round-trip airline tickets to Washington, DC.

Kelsey’s painting, Streetlight, was selected from 64 entries as the best eastern Iowa has to offer.  Kelsey is a junior at North Fayette High School.  The winning artwork, a list of winners, and a gallery of all the submissions can be viewed here: http://braley.house.gov/art-competition
