Kamala Harris Surprises Young Artist By Putting His Painting On The Second Family’s Holiday Card

It’s official! Alex Berko, a sophomore in the Visual Arts department, designed the 2022 holiday card for Vice President of the United States Kamala Harris, and her family!

“Vice President Kamala Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff rang in the winter holiday season with a new friend, 15-year-old artist Alex Berko. Earlier this year, Berko’s visual arts teacher (Mike Easton) provided him photos of the vice president’s official residence and asked him to reimagine it in a wintry setting, leaving out important context about the purpose of the assignment.

Unaware at the time, Berko was entering a secret design contest — his painting would be judged against other D.C. students’ submissions, and the winner would have their design printed on the second family’s 2022 holiday card.” – People Magazine (click to read the full article).
