BATON ROUGE, LA. (NBC33) —
As a part of the Jindal family’s initiative to feature young artists, Louisiana’s First Lady Supriya Jindal announced today the artwork that was selected for display in the Louisiana’s Governor’s Mansion for the month of October.
First Lady Supriya Jindal said, “From our state’s celebrated symbols to the abundance of wildlife, Louisiana continues to serve as inspiration to its children and their artwork. I am honored to showcase artwork from Louisiana's talented students with everyone who visits the Governor’s Mansion.”
Artwork is featured from 4th-7th graders from schools in Baton Rouge, Slidell, Covington, Lafayette, Gretna, Metairie, and West Monroe.
This month, the First Lady asked principals from schools across Louisiana to submit works for display in the Louisiana Governor’s Mansion. In 2008, the Jindal family dedicated this wall of the mansion to children’s artwork. Every month a new group of art is displayed to pay tribute to Louisiana’s young artists.
