Congresswoman Julia Brownley (D-CA) announced Lily Strange, a senior at Buena High School, as the winner of the 2022 Congressional Art Competition for California’s 26th Congressional District. Lily’s piece is entitled “Liberty Forever,” and her artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol complex for one year.
“Each year, I am in awe of the young talent of artists across our district who participate in the Congressional Art Competition,” said Congresswoman Julia Brownley. “Art is an important outlet for students to express their emotions, channel their creativity, and advocate for the causes they care about.”
“I am honored to have my artwork recognized, especially a piece so meaningful to me,” said Lily Strange, 2022 Congressional Art Competition Winner. “Communication is essential, whether between countries or between people, stamps to me honor this. The foundation of our liberty is built from community.”
