WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will appear at the White House on Tuesday for an art awards ceremony with First Lady Jill Biden, the White House said.
Clinton, a former presidential candidate, senator and first lady, will perform at a celebration for the Praemium Imperiale laureates, recipients of a global artistic lifetime achievement award from the Japan Art Association.
“The Praemium Imperiale Laureates were first celebrated in the White House by President (Bill) Clinton and Mrs. Clinton in 1994,” the White House said.
Clinton, a Democrat, became the first woman to be nominated for a major party presidential nomination in 2016. She has been a vocal supporter of President Joe Biden, who is running for re-election in 2024.
