Obama Portrait Earns Detroit Artist Trip to DC

Associated Press

A Detroit student's portrait of President Barack Obama has earned her a second trip Washington, D.C.

The Detroit Public Schools district says Tangela Frazier's portrait is a winner in the 2009 Congressional Artistic Discovery Competition. The 17-year-old Pershing High School 11th grader and other winners will spend Wednesday in Washington.

Their work will be judged again at a reception, with the winner receiving a scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia.

The district says Tangela's art is on display at the Capitol. Tangela earned a trip in January to Obama's inauguration after winning a Detroit schools art contest.
