The ISBA Special Committee on Courthouse Art, a task force spearheaded by immediate-past president Douglas D. Church, has begun the process of securing original artwork of courthouses from all 92 counties to hang as part of a permanent exhibit in the offices of the State Bar.
This one of a kind collection would be the first known comprehensive collection of artwork depicting courthouses from all 92 counties. The first county to contribute was Hamilton County, with an original painting by Rich Ernsting of Indianapolis.
The artwork can be submitted by local bar associations, lawyers, judges and other members of the legal profession. The artwork can be any size and any medium, as long as it is original – not a photograph or print – and framed. The artwork can also be of the current courthouse or historic courthouse, depending on the preference of the donor.
