Senator Bob Huff Seeks Artist Submissions for Capitol Contest

From the Office of Sen. Bob Huff:

Senator Huff Seeks Artist Submissions for Capitol Contest

Artwork Winners Will be Displayed at State Capitol

SACRAMENTO: Senator Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) is now seeking entries for the California State Senate art show, which features local artwork from every corner of California. Artists from the 29th Senate District can submit as many works as they would like, and Senator Huff will select the entry that best represents his district, which covers portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties.

“Artwork entries can include oil paintings, works on paper, weavings, wall hangings and sculpture,” said Senator Huff. “However, the works must be no larger than three feet by five feet, as space at the State Capitol is limited. The purpose of this event is to showcase California’s original artists.”

The California State Senate art show competition is open to all ages. All submissions will be treated with the utmost respect and care and will be safely returned to artists at the end of the exhibit.

Artists who wish to enter the contest should send a photograph of the artwork submission, either by mail or email, with a brief description of the entry. Artists should also send a brief description of themselves and why they feel their artwork best represents the 29th Senate District.

“The deadline for submitting entries is February 23rd,” said Senator Huff. “That will give my office time to review each entry, notify the winner and ship the art to the State Capitol in Sacramento by March 18th.”

Entries can be delivered to Senator Huff’s District Office in Walnut. The address is 20888 Amar Road, Suite 205, Walnut, CA 91789. Photos of entries can also be emailed to Senator Huff through his District Director at Please put California State Senate Art Show Submission in the subject line.

Senator Huff serves as the Senate Republican Caucus Chair and represents portions of Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino Counties. You can follow Senator Huff on Twitter at @bobhuff99.
