The national 2014 Congressional Art Competition is under way, and U.S. Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick invites high schools across Arizona’s District One to submit their students’ artwork.

Each spring, members of the U.S. House of Representatives sponsor this effort to recognize and encourage artistic talent in congressional districts across the nation. All high schools in District One are eligible to participate. 

A winner will be chosen by a panel of judges from throughout Arizona to represent our district, and that student’s artwork will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year alongside artwork from other winners nationwide. Runners-up artwork will be displayed in Kirkpatrick’s Washington, D.C., and district offices.

Entries are limited to two pieces per school and must follow all guidelines, contain all required materials and be received in any of our five district offices no later than April 15, 2014. To enter, please send the original artwork along with a completed application, a one-page description of the medium, and the background of the piece.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
