Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced at a ceremony over the weekend that a painting by Jordan Adams, a 10th grader at City High in Iowa City, was named the winner of the 2013 Congressional Art Competition.  Jordan’s painting was chosen by judges Leslie Grossman, Curator and Gallery Director at St. Ambrose University and Rima Girnius, Curator at Figge Art Museum to represent Iowa’s Second District.  His painting will be hung in the U.S. Capitol and Jordan will receive a free trip to Washington to attend a reception held to honor all of this year’s winners.  A full list of the honorees and photos of their artwork is below.

“Every year I am amazed at the creativity, ingenuity, and talent of our local high school students from across the District.  I send my congratulations to all of the young artists whose excellent submissions made it a very close contest this year.  I especially want to congratulate Jordan and look forward to seeing his artwork hanging in the U.S. Capitol,” said Loebsack.
