ART OF THE NJ STATE HOUSE
The NJ State House maintains an extensive collection of art, from the oil portraits of each NJ Governor which line the rotunda gallery to the woodcarvings, rug and chandelier in the Assembly Room. The piece that I enjoy most is the Boehm Porcelain in the Legislative Wing corridor. This sculpture is named, "The Glory of New Jersey" and is a one of a kind porcelain which displays all of our state symbols. Male and female goldfinches, the honey bee, purple violets, and the red oak are all represented here in this amazing sculpture.
