Congressman Kucinich is a supporter of the arts. There is a positive, though limited, role that the federal government can play in promoting arts and culture in our communities. The United States spends less money than most industrialized nations on arts and culture, and it is only a very small percentage (less than 1/10th of one percent) of the total federal budget.

That is why Congressman Kucinich encourages high school students in the 10th Congressional district to participate in the Artistic Discovery contest every year. Artistic Discovery, coordinated by Members of Congress, is the annual Congressional High School Art Competition and the national exhibition of the winning art representing Congressional Districts across the country. Each year, a winning piece of art from each district is on display as part of the national exhibition in the Cannon Tunnel leading to the US Capitol.
