Cabarrus Arts Council to host art competition

CONCORD ó Congressman Larry Kissell (N.C.-8) joins the Cabarrus Arts Council in hosting the 8th Congressional District Art Competition Reception Tuesday at the Cabarrus Arts Council in the Historic Courthouse at 65 Union St. S. in Concord.
The event is scheduled from 5:30-7 p.m. and the public is encouraged to attend. The winner of the 8th District Congressional Art Competition will be announced and all of the participants will be recognized at the reception.
An annual event for high school art students in each congressional district, the Congressional Art Competition was open to all high schools students (grades 9-12). The winning piece will be displayed in an exhibition in the tunnel leading to the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., for one year.
“Having been a teacher myself, I understand the importance of the arts to a well-rounded education,” Kissell said. “This reception honors not only those student artists who’ve submitted entries for the competition, but all student artists.”
“We are honored to have been selected as the first organization to host Congressman Kissell’s District 8 Art Competition,” said Noelle Scott, executive director of the Cabarrus Arts Council. “The Cabarrus Arts Council has a wonderful partnership with all of the schools in Cabarrus County because we understand how vital the arts are to a solid education. The art contest is one more way to encourage and reward students and teachers for the pursuit of artistic excellence.”
The Congressional Art Competition Washington Reception will take place Friday, June 24. The winning students are invited to attend the unveiling of their work in the tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol Building. Southwest Airlines will provide the winner with three roundtrip tickets to Washington, D.C.
For more information or to RSVP for the reception, please contact the Cabarrus Arts Council at 704-920-2787.
