Flushing student artist Xiangkun Kong recently was honored by Rep. Grace Meng in Washington, DC as winner in the Sixth Congressional District art competition.
Kong’s winning artwork, along with the others from art contests throughout the United States, will be displayed for one year in the Cannon Tunnel, a heavily traveled corridor of the United States Capitol.
Kong won this year’s competition for his artwork entitled “New York City in a Room,” inset, a drawing he created using pen, water colors, pencil and charcoal. Kong plans to attend Penn State this fall and major in engineering. He is a graduate of St. Francis Prep in Fresh Meadows.
