2021 Red Room Holiday Decorations, Biden Administratiion
This photograph was taken by David Wiegold in the Red Room on November 29, 2021 during a press preview of the White House holiday decorations. For their first year in the White House, President Joseph R. Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden chose the theme, "Gifts from the Heart." The theme was meant to honor the things we cherish and bring us together despite the obstacles posed by a pandemic, time, and distance. Decorations in the Red Room honored the "Gift of the Performing Arts" and featured musical instruments, ballet slippers, and a pair of cranberry trees with a decorative trumpet base. This photograph prominently features William Franklin Draper's 1962 portrait of President John F. Kennedy on the wall.
