2009 Smithsonian/SDP Ornament Project

The Society of Decorative Painters were invited to help the Smithsonian
Institute/Museum of Art – Renwick Gallery to decorate its annual Christmas tree.
Chapter members, Klaudia Durnin, Donna Talerico and Lita Ducote submitted Christmas Ornaments and were chosen.

Of the completed ornaments received, five hundred were chosen by a panel comprising SDP and Smithsonian staff for inclusion on the holiday tree in the Renwick Gallery’s Grand Salon. Remaining ornaments will be displayed on the holiday tree on view at SDP Headquarters in Wichita, KS.
