Youth Art Exhibit, Congresswoman Diana DeGette - An Artistic Discovery is an art competition sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives. Each congressional district across the nation hosts a district-wide art competition to determine the best piece of artwork from that district to hang in the Cannon Tunnel of the U.S. Capitol in June.  

The Human Touch - Thought-provoking. Challenging. Diverse. These are just a few words that describe selections from the RBC Wealth Management Art Collection. The title refers to both the ability of the figure to reflect the human condition and to the facility of artists to depict it. The contemporary works assembled in the exhibition combine to form an image of our human society at the turn of the 21st century — the end of one era and the beginning of another — as seen through the artist's eye.
