Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, who represents Middletown in the U.S. House of Representatives, will unveil this year’s submissions for the annual Congressional Art Competition today, May 4 at 12:30 p.m., at Gateway Community College. She will announce the winning artist at a reception honoring the students. The exhibition will remain on display at Gateway Community College through May 14 and includes 9 submissions from Middletown High School students.

The art will be displayed in the hallway between the Cannon House Office Building and the Capitol, a very well-traveled area, with members, staff and visitors walking back and forth all day long seeing the artwork.
