Gottheimer Hosts Congressional Art Competition Showcase, Celebrates North Jersey Students

May 02, 2018

Yesterday, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) hosted a showcase of 75 submissions in the Congressional Art Competition at The Hermitage in Ho-Ho-Kus. Gottheimer joined high school artists who have submitted art to the annual competition and their families at the museum to view their submissions in a gallery setting.

Dozens of talented high school artists from across North Jersey have submitted their art for a chance to have their work displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year and to win a trip to Washington courtesy of Southwest Airlines through this annual competition.

Residents of the Fifth District are invited to vote online for their favorite pieces to help Gottheimer select this year’s winner. Voting closes Saturday, May 5th.
