As I type this, Rocco's heading west to the great state of Washington at the invitation of U.S. Congressman Norm Dicks. Tomorrow's itinerary includes visits to the Tacoma Art Museum and the Museum of Glass, as well as the announcement of the talented young artist who's won the 2010 Congressional Art Contest in Washington's 6th District. The triumphant teen---the contest is open to high schoolers nationwide---will have his or her artwork displayed at the U.S. Capitol along with the other winners from across the U.S.
Stay tuned for Rocco's Postcard from Washington arriving on the blog early next week!
