Her artwork to hang in U.S. Capitol for one year

Washington – Today Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced that local judges have selected Nalani Marlowe from Kelseyville High School in Lake County as the 2019 Fifth Congressional District Art Competition Grand Prize Winner. Her art piece, A Day in the Life, will hang in the halls of the United States Capitol for one year and she will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. next month.

“Proud to announce that Nalani Marlowe is this year’s Grand Prize winner for the Fifth Congressional District Art Competition!” said Thompson. “She displayed great skill and talent with the use of scratchboard in the final piece she produced. A Day in the Life will be an excellent representation from our district to everyone who walks the halls of the Capitol and I look forward to seeing it each time I walk to vote. Congratulations, Nalani!”

A Day in the Life was created using scratchboard and represents Nalani with her dog relaxing on her front porch – a glimpse into her everyday life. Nalani and a guest will receive plane tickets to Washington for a ceremony honoring winners from across the nation next month.
