2007 State Easter Eggs

The 2007 Easter Egg Collection continues the tradition that began in 1994 where each state sends a decorated egg to the White House for display. Artists from across the United States created the decorated eggs, which represent each state and the District of Columbia. Each year the artists vote amongst themselves to select the artist to create the following year's commemorative egg which is presented to the President and First Lady.

You can see the egg from each state at the White House website. The egg shown is, of course, from the state of New York. Link -via Metafilter

Update: Commenter Smurf Kicker pointed out Wyoming’s egg as a “true masterpiece”. There is some controversy over that one, since the artist was not from Wyoming.

Any 5 year old from wyoming could have painted something better looking than that piece of crap. Boo's and hisses to the egg board for finding the "artist".

It's no worse than Kansas, who enclosed an egg in a crochet blanket and glued on some miniature wheat stalks, or West Virginia, which isn't even an egg -- I think.

"Some controversy" indeed regarding the Wyoming egg.

The "egg board" doesn't have a rep in Wyoming, so they claim that they couldn't find any artists in the entire state to do the Wyoming egg. They gave the job to the son of a board member.

His tie to Wyoming? He snowboarded at Jackson Hole. Thanks for representing us so well...
