Juan Felipe Herrera to Speak at Capitol Tree Lighting

Herrera will recite a new Christmas tree poem, and discuss the beautiful things he has encountered across the state in his role as Poet Laureate.

Grantee Creates CA's Ornaments for National Xmas Tree

Every year, it's our privilege to choose an artist or arts organization to represent California by making ornaments for the National Christmas Tree display in President's Park in Washington, DC. This year's ornaments were created by Lux Art Institute in Encinitas. "It's very special for our class to do the ornaments representing California that are going to be on the National Tree. It's something I will remember forever," said Sofia Lopez, one of the third grade artists who created the ornaments.
