WISCONSIN EGG 2008
By Ruth Meszaros

Ruth Meszaros Wisconsin Egg White House Gallery

Each year the White House holds a display of eggs decorated to represent the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. This Egg Gallery is usually available for viewing on the White House website, and the collection is usually on display at the White House Visitors Center for several weeks around Easter time. The display then becomes part of the White House permanent collection or is placed in a presidential library.

Each state has a committee to choose the egg to represent their state for the year. This year the Wisconsin Poultry and Egg Industries Association chose Ruth to make the egg for 2008. The result is shown on these pages in detail, with explanations of the images applied to the egg.

As of February 2008 Ruth has not yet heard when the 2008 Egg Gallery will be on display or where it will be housed on a permanent basis.
