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 February.

First Lady Supriya Jindal said, “It is amazing to see the incredible talent within our Great State with each month’s artwork. Louisiana’s children are always learning and exploring –and through art, they are able to express how they see the world. This month's art showcases art from young kindergarteners through seniors in high school – and each piece truly celebrates our State's student's creativity."
