Celebrating its 11th anniversary as a First Lady initiative, Artistree 2021 asks artists, or any West Virginia resident, to create an ornament that “Celebrates the magic of Christmas.”
“I want to know what makes Christmas ‘magical’ for West Virginians all over our state,” First Lady Cathy Justice said. “Art is a great way to express yourself and your favorite memories. So, when you’re creating an ornament for our tree, keep that idea in mind.”
Ornaments must be hand-crafted and suitable for hanging on a tree. Size and weight should be taken into consideration.
Submissions must be mailed to:
The deadline for submitting ornaments is Friday, Nov. 19, 2021.
