Each year House Members are invited to create a visual representation in the form of an ornament of what makes their Texas House District special. Now in its seventh year, the district ornament project has proven to be a delightful and informative experience for the Capitol's thousands of holiday visitors, who enjoy seeing the artists' depictions of what makes communities throughout Texas unique.
These artistic endeavors will decorate a majestic 20- foot, Texas-grown Christmas tree that stands in the Capitol's House Chamber during the holiday season. This year, the tree will be on display from December 4th through January 3rd.
Detailed photographs and ornament descriptions are compiled into an annual ornament album that can be viewed either in the House Chamber, while the tree is on display, or year-round on the House website (see below).
