2014 Congressional Art Competition

This is a nationwide art competition, sponsored by Congress.

The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide art program, sponsored by members of Congress through competitions held in their congressional districts, which affords creative high school students the opportunity to showcase their talents in Washington, D.C.  Each year the winning entries, one from each congressional district, are displayed in the U.S. Capitol.

The first place work from each district will be professionally framed and sent to Washington to be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year.  The winning artist is invited to go to Washington for a national reception to honor the winning artists from all over the country.

Hillary Quella: Anthropology of Spirit

For the curious, life is one continuous effort after meaning. Individuals, cultures, philosophical theories, and religious ideologies all share a myriad of beliefs in hope of explaining the mysterious and the unknown. 

Anthropology of Spirit references a lexicon of associations signifying spiritual beliefs, while intentionally leaving room for multiple possibilities, contradictions, and conceptual overlap. These photographs concerning mystery and the human soul, are an advocate for imagination as a path to understanding and are meant to be elusive, as evidence of human spirituality’s infinite complexity.

Quella uses film to produce these photos, which were taken at night. 

Exhibit Dates: April 3 - May 11, 2014
Reception: 5 - 8 pm, Thursday, April 3

Quella is an assistant professor of art at Marian University and the owner of Hillary Quella Photography.

This exhibit is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board.
