WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Bill Shuster (R-Hollidaysburg) announced today that Central High School student Brittany Albright’s artwork is displayed in the U.S. Capitol, representing Pennsylvania’s 9th District in the 2017 High School Art Competition.
 
“Brittany is a talented young individual whose passion and talent shows in her artwork,” said Shuster. “It was a pleasure being able to show her around the Capitol, and I know the thousands of people walking by her artwork for the next year will enjoy it as much as I do.”
 
“It’s a great honor to have my work displayed in the Capitol, and I hope everybody who sees my work sees the love and joy I put into it,” said Brittany Albright. “Above all I know my artistic talent comes from God, and I thank him for giving me the chance to share it with so many here.”
 
The annual Congressional High School Art Competition recognizes some of the nation’s top high school artists. Each congressional district selects one winner to represent the district in the display in the U.S. Capitol. Congressman Shuster’s office works in partnership with the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art in Loretto, which provides judges who are responsible for choosing the winner each year.
