Congressman Lynch Meets With 2004 Winner Of Congressional Art Competition For High School Students

May 9, 2005
Congressman Stephen F. Lynch today met with Clara Bohan of East Walpole and her family in his District Office in Boston.  Clara, a junior at East Walpole High School, was the 2004 winner of "An Artistic Discovery,” the 23rd Annual Congressional Art Competition. 

Students from across the Ninth Congressional District submitted artwork to last year’s Congressional Competition, and the winner was selected by a panel of local artists.  Clara’s piece, "Hometown Hats,” was sent to Washington and has been hanging for the last year in the U.S. Capitol Building together with the winners from across the nation.

Congressman Lynch said, "Clara is a truly gifted young artist, and she is a wonderful reflection of her parents, Michele and Thomas Bohan, and she displays favorably the influence of her art teacher, Diana Hampe.  I hope that her success will encourage other students from East Walpole and across the Ninth District to continue their pursuit of the arts.”
