PARAMUS— Today, May 6, 2023, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) hosted a showcase of 75 submissions in the Congressional Art Competition at the Moses Center at Bergen Community College. Gottheimer joined high school artists, who have submitted art to the annual competition, and their families at the showcase to view their submissions in a gallery setting.
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. The artwork that wins second place will be displayed in Gottheimer’s Washington D.C. office and the third place winner will be displayed in his district office.
Residents of the Fifth District are invited to vote online for their favorite pieces to help Gottheimer select this year’s winner. Voting is open through Saturday, May 6, 2023.
“I love this showcase and it’s something I look forward to every year. We received 75 submissions this year — so many that we outgrew our old venue! This competition gives me an opportunity to really take in how special and talented our community and youth are here in North Jersey,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5).“I want to give a huge round of applause to all of our talented artists for being here and entering your art in the showcase this year — it takes courage to enter your work in an art contest. The works of art represent a diverse and energetic community.”
Gottheimer was joined by Bergen County Commissioner Tracy Zur and Bergen Community College Vice President of External Affairs Suzanne M. Wetzel.
