Tonight, high school students from Baristaville and neighboring towns get to showcase their art at Montclair State University’s Life Hall Art Gallery, at the 16th Annual Congressional Art Show and Competition. Hosted by U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.), the show spotlights student artists from area high schools.
The competition is part of a nationwide program held in congressional districts around the country. First place artists in each district get their work hung in the U.S. Capital for one year. The runner up to this year’s competition will have his/her art work displayed in Pascrell’s district office. To attend, enter at the Normal Avenue entrance and park in parking deck (free parking vouchers available!)
