Congratulations to SPHS sophomore, Claire Yee, who has been selected as a finalist in the 2022 Congressional Art Exhibition. Yee’s artwork “Constraint” is one of seven pieces that will be recognized at the awards ceremony on May 22, 2022. The final results will be announced during the ceremony at Pasadena City Hall.
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 submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of congressional district artists select the winning entries. 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.
