Yesterday, Congressman John Yarmuth’s office announced the winners of his Congressional Art Competition. Mary-Kathryn Smith of Assumption High School was the top pick.
Here’s a look at “Fear at Night” by Smith, an oil painting:
“This competition is about cultivating a love of art and encouraging young people to get involved in creative endeavors,” Yarmuth said. “I am proud to take Mary-Kathryn’s painting to Washington, where it will not only represent her accomplishments, but everything young artists in Louisville are capable of and the unique qualities of our city’s arts scene: history, promise, creativity, and engagement.”
