Tyree Brown, a junior at Suitland High School, won the 2012 Congressional Art Competition for Maryland’s 4th Congressional District for her painting “The Hidden Vent.”
Brown’s artwork was selected Saturday evening at the Harmony Hall Regional Center in Fort Washington.
“It’s not easy to put your work on display, and then have someone make a judgment about it,” said Rep. Donna Edwards. “I really value art. It tells us about our community — your hopes, your dreams and your vision.
“I am really honored to announce the winners and I cannot wait to stop and look everyday at Tyree’s work that will be displayed with winners from every single district of this country including the District of Columbia. Everyone that participated in this year’s competition is a winner,” Edwards said.
