Family Dining Room, Barack Obama Administration

This photograph of the Family Dining Room was taken by Matthew D'Agostino in 2016, during the Barack Obama administration. The Family Dining Room is located on the State Floor of the White House. During their residence in the Executive Mansion, the Obamas oversaw the 2015 refurbishing of the dining room, incorporating modern art and design into the room. Among the selected pieces of work are "Resurrection" by Alma Thomas on the north wall and a wool rug adapted from a pictorial weaving called "Black, White, and Gray" by Anni Albers.
