Quitman High graduate to have winning artwork displayed in hallways of Congress

MONROE, La. (KNOE) – Artwork from a recent Quitman High School graduate is now on display in the hallways of Congress after he won a contest.

Laura Arnold submitted her artwork titled “Chicken Bits” to compete in the 2024 Congressional Art Competition. Her artwork was selected as the winner for Louisiana’s Fifth District.

“Chicken Bits” features a chicken made of blue, orange and brown collage pieces.

“Laura’s work beautifully captures the unique diversity of agriculture that surrounds us in the Fifth District, and demonstrates a level of artistry and creativity that I could only wish for,” said Fifth District Congresswoman Julia Letlow. “I enjoy walking past Lauren’s work every time I go to the House floor for votes, and I will continue to show it to every tour group that comes to visit.”

Arnold’s artwork will be displayed alongside that of other winners from every district across the country.
