Bureau Valley High School Student to have art featured in Washington

Posted by wlpo on May 22, 2012

A drawing featuring a young woman’s face is the self-portrait that has a Bureau Valley High School student heading to Washington D.C.

Senior Bailey Roberts’ piece, “Quiescency” was selected the winner of the 11th Congressional District Art Competition.  It’s Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s district.

Roberts’ work will be displayed in a yearlong exhibit in the Cannon tunnel that leads to the U.S. Capitol.   Roberts and a guest will also be flown to Washington, D.C. to attend the official art show opening.

Sophia Alonzo of Ottawa High School took second place with her piece titled “Kylie in the Sky with Diamonds”.

The artwork was selected based on a crowd-source vote and by a panel of local judges.
