STATE OF THE ARTS - Congressional Art Competition

“Immigration” by Brissa Cervantes

Each year, the Office of Congresswoman Veronica Escobar hosts a Congressional Art Competition which calls on high school students in our community to submit their artwork to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C. This year’s winner was Brissa Cervantes for her piece titled “Immigration.”

Congresswoman Veronica Escobar talks about the competition, and also about her support for the Latino Smithsonian and efforts to include the El Paso experience in exhibits.
