GRAND HAVEN – Ludington High School student Ruby Henrickson recently won the 2016 Congressional Art Competition for Michigan’s Second Congressional District for her oil painting titled “Static”. Congressman Bill Huizenga met with the top 10 finalists Monday evening at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum in Grand Haven to announce the winner of this year’s competition.

“Congratulations to Ruby on winning the 2016 Congressional Art Competition for Michigan’s Second Congressional District,” the Congressman said. “Ruby’s oil on canvas clearly displays her skill, as well as the time and effort she poured into creating such an incredible piece. ‘Static’ is a tremendous example of the creativity and innovation we are so fortunate to have here in west Michigan. I am glad to see Ruby’s talent will be shared with the thousands of people who visit the U.S. Capitol over the coming year.”

“Static” will now head to Washington, D.C. to be hung in the U.S. Capitol for the next year along with the winning pieces from each congressional district across the country. Ruby will also have the opportunity to participate in a congratulatory ceremony in Washington, D.C. to celebrate her incredible artwork with other talented artists from around the nation.

All top 10 entries from this year’s record-setting Congressional Art Competition can be viewed on Congressman Huizenga’s Facebook Page. For details on how to participate in the 2017 Congressional Art Competition please contact Carly in the Grandville Office at (616) 570-0917.
