Rep. Waters Hosts Torrance Artist at Congressional Art Competition Awards in Washington

WASHINGTON — Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee, welcomed the winner of the 43rd Congressional District’s 2017 Congressional Art Competition, Eddie Kim, to her Washington, D.C. office. Kim, a senior at Ambassador High School in Torrance, California, joined hundreds of students from across the country whose art work was unveiled at the Annual Congressional Art Competition Awards Ceremony in the U.S. Capitol Congressional Auditorium.  

Eddie Kim is an incredibly talented young artist from the 43rd District, and I am thrilled to welcome him to Washington where his art work will be on display for thousands of guests to view in the U.S. Capitol,” said Congresswoman Maxine Waters.                                    

Eddie Kim was one of the 13 students from the 43rd District who submitted original art work for the 2017 competition. His graphite pencil and watercolor drawing titled “Nostalgia” will be displayed in the United States Capitol Building for one year. 

Since the Congressional Art Competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. For more information about the 2017 Congressional Art Competition or to review the 2018 submission guidelines, please visit https://waters.house.gov/services/art-competition.
