The university's Student Art Alliance was chosen as a representative of
South Dakota for the display.

National Parks Service,” Student Art Alliance President Epiphany Knedler
said. “It has been exciting to visually represent South Dakota’s unique
landscape on both sides of the river.”
Ornaments depicting South Dakota's landscapes were designed
by Knedler and Sophia Wermers from Vermillion, South Dakota. The
ornaments used in the display were all handcrafted and will hang on 56
different trees, which will represent each state in the U.S. as well as each of
the territories and the District of Columbia.
The trees, which are part of the
"American Celebrates," will be displayed from Dec. 1 through
