A painting of two migrant children holding a sign that reads "Bring Our Mom Back" will hang in the US Capitol as one of the winners of the Congressional Art Competition for high school students.

(美國)高中生國會美術競賽得獎作品之一、一幅畫有2名移民孩童拿著寫有「把我媽帶回來」字樣的標語牌的畫作,將懸掛於國會山莊。

Dominick Cocozza, 17, of Virginia made the painting - titled "Immigration" - which features two concerned-looking children holding the sign. "I had seen lots of pictures of kids carrying signs and stuff," he said. "So I thought by doing this one, I could mix the message in with my artistic abilities and capture that moment."

這幅來自17歲、維吉尼亞州的多明尼克.科卡察、名為「移民」的畫作,描繪2名一臉愁容的小孩拿著標語牌。「我看過很多小孩拿著標語牌與其他東西的照片,」他(科卡察)說。「所以我想,藉由畫出這幅畫,我能將此等訊息與我的藝術能力結合,捕捉此一時刻。」

Rep. Don Beyer announced Cocozza’s piece as the winner from his district at a reception Monday.

聯邦眾議員唐.貝耶週一在接待會上宣布,科卡察的畫是來自他選區的得獎作品。

In a statement to CNN, Beyer congratulated Cocozza and said he looked forward to having the painting in the Capitol.

貝耶在致有線電視新聞網的一份聲明中恭喜科卡察,並說他期待這幅畫懸掛於國會山莊。
