Each year members of the U.S. House of Representatives join together to recognize the creative spirit of American high school students in a nationwide art competition. The contest---An Artistic Discovery 2001---is implemented by the members in their districts and features paintings, drawings, and prints- including photography and computer art. Each member brings a winning entry back to Washington, D.C. to be displayed in the annual exhibition in a corridor of the U.S. Capitol--an area dedicated to the artistic talents of today's youth. The Baum School of Art and Binney & Smith , Inc. are co-sponsoring the Twentieth Annual Congressional Art Competition. The honorary chairman is the Honorable Pat Toomy, who serves in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington for the 15th District. The Baum School of Art has been organizing this wonderful opportunity since it started 20 years ago. The following images represent Parkland High School's entries for the 2000-2001 school year.
