(April 26, 2006)--The office of Rep. Henry Bonilla, R-Texas, will host its annual 23rd Congressional District Art Competition from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, April 29, in the Main Building Regents' Room (3.106) on the UTSA 1604 Campus. The artwork was submitted by high school students in the 23rd Congressional District. Bonilla will attend the awards ceremony on Saturday.

The UTSA community is invited to view the artwork from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, April 28 in the Main Building Regents' Room (3.106).

"Last year's competition produced some amazing artwork," said Bonilla. "I'm looking forward to meeting this year's artists. I'm also excited to see some of their artwork hanging in the halls of the U.S. Capitol."

Conducted annually in congressional districts across the nation, the competition is designed to highlight the creative spirit of America's high school art students and to encourage their artistic endeavors. Prizes for the students range from a scholarship to three round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C.

Artwork will be judged by a panel selected from the art community including Arturo Almeida, UTSA art collection curator; Daniel Guerrero, municipal court judge and artist; and Martin Rodriguez, artist and UTSA College of Architecture information technology associate.

The winning work of art will be sent to Washington, D.C., for display in a corridor of the U.S. Capitol alongside winning artwork from across the country.
