Artistic Discovery

April 26 to May 28, 2015

Each spring, the members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor a nationwide high school arts competition to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in each Congressional District. The overall winner of each district will be displayed for one year in the U.S. Capitol. Skokie Public Library is honored to host the exhibit each spring for the 9th Congressional District. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky will be present to greet and honor this year's young artists at a presentation at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, May 5.
