Manlius Pebble Hill student’s art work will adorn halls of Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. — An 8th-grader at Manlius Pebble Hill School will have her art work displayed in the U.S. Capitol for the next year after it was deemed the best in a competition in the 24th Congressional District.

Loren Brown, a Marcellus resident, won the competition for her photograph, “Dreaming in White,” according to U.S. Rep. John Katko, R-Camillus, who sponsored the local Congressional Art Competition.

“I look forward to seeing her piece in Washington, where it will be on display for thousands of visitors to the U.S. Capitol,” Katko said in a statement. “Central New York is home to many gifted young artists, and I was truly impressed by the high caliber of talent and passion from our local students.”

Brown’s work was selected by a panel of judges from Onondaga, Oswego, Cayuga and Wayne counties, beating our more than 30 other entries. She will travel to Washington, D.C., for a reception in June.
