Local artists created the decorated eggs, which represent each state and the District of Columbia. The 2002 Easter Egg Collection continues the tradition that began in 1994 where each state sends a decorated egg to the White House for display. The display includes a painted cracked egg representing Virginia and the Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon. The collection is coordinated by the American Egg Board.
