 As a part of the Jindal family’s initiative to feature young artists, Louisiana’s First Lady Supriya Jindal announced today the Christmas ornaments that were selected for display in Louisiana Governor’s Mansion for the month of December.

 

This month, the First Lady asked Superintendents from all sixty-four parishes of Louisiana to have 12 ornaments from their districts decorated by students for display in the Mansion. Included in the display are ornaments decorated in celebration of the Mansion’s 50th Anniversary.  Additionally, 21 ornaments were selected for display on the student art wall in the Mansion rotunda.

 

First Lady Supriya Jindal said, “This month, the student art wall celebrates the Christmas Season by showcasing ornaments created by students from across Louisiana. The ornaments range from candy canes to fleur-de-lis and from the State Capitol to a trumpet.

We are delighted to share the spirit of Christmas through the eyes of our State’s talented young artists with all who visit.”

 

Also on display at the Governor’s Mansion is an ornament created by artist Susan Hebert and students at A.A. Nelson Elementary in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The students created an ornament that hangs on the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse in President’s Park, along with twenty-four ornaments that currently hang on Louisiana’s State tree in Washington DC.
