Maine’s 2nd District Congressman, Bruce Poliquin, visited with Michaela Shorey, the winner of the 2016 Congressional Art Competition, in his Washington, D.C. office. 

Shorey, a senior at Rangeley Lakes High School, won the contest with her portrait, “An Older-Young Girl,” which was crafted using various materials including pastels and cut paper.  Shorey’s winning artwork is currently being displayed in the U.S. Capitol.  Congressman Poliquin released the following statement:

Michaela’s artwork is a shining example of the talents of our State, and I am extraordinarily proud to showcase it in the U.S. Capitol for thousands of visitors from around the country to see,” said Congressman Poliquin. “Congratulations, again, Michaela for working so hard to achieve this!”
