U.S. Rep. Ron Kind’s annual student art exhibit opened to the public this week, and can be seen through April 14 at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse’s Center for the Arts.

Organized by Kind and his wife, Tawni, the 23rd annual event showcases art created by high school students throughout western and central Wisconsin.

“Our students in Wisconsin have amazing talent, and it always makes me proud to point out Wisconsinites’ art in my offices and in the Capitol,” Kind said. “I hope everyone in western and central Wisconsin can take the time to visit the art gallery this spring, and join us celebrating the arts and young artists here in our state.”

A reception to recognize the students and unveil the winning pieces will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at the UW-L Center for the Arts.

What Ron does best, photo ops. Nothing that should be getting done in Washington is getting any attention. I guess this is more important.
