14 US Artists Recognized in 2020 Congressional Art Competition; Lillian Broeksmit ’20 Wins Second Place in 8th District

Congratulations to the 14 US artists recognized in the 2020 Congressional Art Competition. Their works, and those by more than 100 fellow students from area high schools, are now on display in the Maryland 8th District virtual exhibition.

Congressman Jamie Raskin unveiled the online show, along with the first- and second-place winners, whose pieces will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol and his offices, respectively.

Lillian Broeksmit ’20 earned a second place for her work “Ethereal Glow" (at right).

“I…want to thank all of our student entrants for sharing with us their strikingly impressive hard work and boundless artistic vision,” Rep. Raskin said.

The School also recently learned that three US students have been juried into Glen Echo’s Yellow Barn High School Student Art Exhibition: Madeleine Gray ’20, Pascale Schmidt ’20, and Emily Ewing ’20. (Show details remain TBA.) 

We applaud all of these artists—and their dedicated teachers—on this impressive recognition!
