The Courthouse Artwork

A stairway in the Old Courthouse building

The interior murals flanking the triple-door North entrance are of a Navajo sand painting divided into two hemispheres. The guardian figures flanking the interior primary doors to the administrative function of the courthouse were intended to convey more than decoration by the unknown artist who created them. These images are perhaps the most overlooked and locally relevant images within the courthouse: they originate from the area and communicate in a language that needs no words. The signage over each of the interior doorways is American Art Deco.

We are currently carrying out research to best inform you about the wonderful artwork of the old Courthouse building. Our findings will be featured in this page soon.
