Jul 06, 2011

Washington, DC – U.S. Congressman Frank Lucas (R-OK) recently welcomed Taelor McClure to Washington to recognize her as this year’s Congressional Art Competition winner from Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District. McClure was presented an award for her oil painting, entitled “Pards” at a ceremony and reception honoring winners across the nation. Her artwork will be displayed in the corridor tunnel leading to the U.S. Capitol Building for one year along with winning entries from other congressional districts.

“Taelor has represented our district well with her artistic talent,” said Lucas. “Members of Congress and visitors from all over the world travel the corridor daily. It gives me a great sense of pride to notice her painting is labeled as from Oklahoma’s Third Congressional District, and I know other visitors enjoy her artistic creativity as well. I congratulate Taelor and I encourage her to continue pursuing her interest in art.”

Taelor is a sophomore at Alva High School, and she is the daughter of Greg and Amy McClure.
