“The winning piece, ‘Waterboy,’ showed creativity and application of the technical skills Mariko learned in school. I look forward to seeing it displayed at our nation’s Capitol for all to admire,” Hirono said.

Langevin will have her artwork displayed along a highly visited corridor that leads to the U.S. Capitol Building, together with winning pieces of art representing other congressional districts. Gouveiah’s “Man and Nature” will be on exhibit in Hirono’s Washington office over the next year.
