The nationwide art showcase, An Artistic Discovery, provides Members of Congress with the opportunity to showcase the talents of creative young artists in their districts.

 

“The level of artistic talent in the First Congressional District is exceptional,” Congressman Brady said. “I am proud that the work of Mr. Hawes will be on display with the best young artists in the country.

 

These young artists will have their work seen by hundreds of thousands people from across the country and around the world who visit the U.S. Capitol. The exhibition not only encourages young artists it also makes the overwhelming case regarding the importance of arts education in our schools.”

 

Mr. Hawes, a resident of North Philadelphia , will continue his art studies at the University of the Arts.
