Peyton McLaughlin – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS senior Morgan Mulholland won first place in the 19th annual District Congressional Art Competition.

LRHS Fine Arts teacher Abby Kolesa stated that Morgan’s piece “will be hung in the Washington, DC Capitol building for one year.”

Mulholland’s art was picked by Ringling Museum curators out of all of the other submissions received.

Morgan’s art usually consists of lighter concepts and watercolors with very detailed areas that help pull the piece together.  She blends the background to create a more abstract piece in her own unique way.

Kolesa referred to her work as cheery, happy and upbeat.

She has won other awards for her art as well, she won the ‘people’s choice award’ at the Heart and Soul Gala, which only allowed 20 of the best art students to enter, and ‘best of show’ in the Airport contest.

Mulholland will fly to DC for a fancy dinner reception for being the winner in the District Congressional Art Competition.
