Art Competition

Congratulations to California’s 48th District winner, Remi Frolichman! Remi’s piece, Firenze, will be on display in the halls connecting Congressional offices starting July 24th. A panel of judges from universities and art galleries in our district judged 41 pieces and were astounded at the sheer talent and skill these students displayed. Art is such a big part of our community, and I look forward to supporting these young artists in their journey!



We are excited to congratulate our 2nd place winner Charles Besso and 3rd place winner Faith Reihm on their achievements. The top three students were the recipients of prize money donated by Regional Vice President Richard Porras on behalf of AT&T. Not only did all participants in the program have a chance for their pieces to be displayed at the Laguna Art Museum in Laguna Beach, but all pieces were also on display at the non-profit, Furnishing Hope, in Newport Beach. All partners were crucial in making this evening a success, and we could not have done it without their support! 

I would like to extend a sincere congratulation to our competitors in this year’s competition, and look forward to highlighting your talent again next year!
