PHOTOS: Titus Announces 2023 Congressional Art Competition Winners

Las Vegas, NV - Today Congresswoman Dina Titus (NV-01) announced the winners of the 2023 Congressional Art Competition for high school students in Nevada’s First District. Cyenna Nash of the Las Vegas Academy of the Arts won this year’s competition with their piece, titled She’s There for Me, which will be displayed in the United States Capitol for one year alongside the works of other young artists from across the country.

“I’m pleased to congratulate Cyenna Nash and all the inspiring young artists who enriched the 2023 Congressional Art Competition,” said Rep. Titus. “Each year this competition gives our district the chance to showcase its tremendous artistic talent and underscores the importance of the arts and humanities at all levels of education. Cyenna’s work will be displayed in the United States Capitol for the next year, and will showcase the creativity and spirit of District One for visitors from around the country.”

Each spring the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition which provides an opportunity to recognize and encourage artistic talent across the country. These pieces are a patchwork of our country’s history at any given time. From founding the Arts Caucus in the Nevada Legislature to being a member of the Congressional Humanities Caucus, Rep. Titus has a long track record of support for the arts. To quote one of her favorite mugs, “The EARTH without ART is just EH.”

Below are the results of the 2023 competition, with high-quality photos:
