The three digitally printed glass panels hit directly on the ideas of social justice and equality. Artist Riley Holloway approached the Municipal Court Building using his background in drawing and graphic design to create an artwork that is strong, but simplistic. While Holloway maintains visual elements found in his oil paintings he chose to approach the artwork digitally to add a decorative element to the work that helps seamlessly integrate the artwork with the building’s Art Deco interior design.
In Spring 2020, the artwork will be dedicated as part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating recent building improvements. More details will be announced soon. In the meantime, you may view the artwork during regular business hours.
