Montserrat College of Art hosts the Sixth Congressional District Congressional Art Show and Competition annually in the spring for Congressman Seth Moulton. It is an opportunity for high school students to be recognized for their artistic talent and the local exhibition is one of many across the country hosted by members of Congress in their home districts. This year’s awards ceremony with the Congressman will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 3:30-5 pm in Montserrat Gallery, 23 Essex St, Beverly, MA 01915.
The competition is open to students in grades 10-12, from public and private schools and home-schooled students from the 6th Essex District of Massachusetts. This marks the 25th year that Montserrat has hosted this competition. Last year’s exhibit included 148 pieces from 30 different public and private high schools and home-schooled students from the 6th District.
Each winner will be presented with a citation from Congressman Moulton and varying levels of scholarships to Montserrat’s Summer Pre-College Program. The grand prize winning piece will be sent to Washington, DC where it will hang in the Capitol building for one year along with winners from other Congressional districts across the country. A ceremony to congratulate all the winners will be held in Washington, DC in June.
