Description
 

The 1998 White House Ornament features the large Entrance Hall and Cross Hall which were part of James Hoban's original design for the White House. The design of the hall has not been altered throughout the years at the White House, although marble walls and floors were added to the Cross Hall during the Truman renovation. The Entrance Hall is still used as a reception area and is seen by visitors as they leave the White House. The portrait of President John F. Kennedy on display in the Entrance Hall was painted by Aaron Shikler in 1970.

The Steinway Grand Piano, designed by Eric Gugler, was donated to the White House in 1938 by Steinway and is decorated with gilt stenciling by Dunbar Beck. This piano is often referred to as the Truman piano because of his passion for playing it. This piano is still in use for performances in the White House.
