Lamborn to attend local art opening tonight

Posted By on Fri, Feb 22, 2013 at 1:17 PM

Doug Lamborn is a man of many letters. That is, he inspires a lot of strong feelings from people, who write letters to the Indy and other publications talking about how pissed off they are at the congressman.

That's probably the most non-partisan thing I can write about him, since the focus of this blog is that the 5th Congressional District Representative, with his wife Jeanie, will attend tonight's opening reception for Cottonwood Center for the Arts' Congressional Art Competition.

The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide program started in 1982 that engages high school artists to show their efforts in local galleries with the chance to then exhibit in Washington, D.C. Tonight, a winner from the group will have his or her work displayed in the Capitol for one year and receive D.C. plane tickets, museum tickets and scholarships.

According to the competition's website, students submit their work to their local district representative and a panel of artists will select a winner.

The show features over 100 pieces from high school and home school students district-wide, Cottonwood says. In addition, it will also hang work from Ridgeview Elementary students upstairs "to show our continued support for student art and art in schools."

The reception runs from 5-8 p.m. and will have refreshments provided by the El Paso County Republican Women.
