The Kansas City Public Library plays host to the annual Missouri 5th Congressional District student art exhibit and celebration, at which U.S. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver II and his wife, Dianne Cleaver, will honor local high school artists.
All student art submissions will be on display at the Central Library from April 7-14, 2016. One selected piece will go on display for a year in Washington, D.C. – in the Cannon tunnel leading from the Cannon House Office Building to the U.S. Capitol.
The event is part of a nationwide program designed to recognize and encourage high school artists in each U.S. congressional district. More than 650,000 students across the country have participated since the competition began in 1982.
