In 2003, the Supreme Court of Ohio moved into the Ohio Judicial Center, a beautifully restored, historic and architectural treasure on the Scioto riverfront in Columbus that features an impressive collection of original art throughout its interior and exterior. This art includes murals, relief sculptures, and mosaics depicting scenes and people from Ohio history, important Ohio industries and other subjects.
Since moving into the Ohio Judicial Center, the Court has acquired a large collection of new public art that is on display for visitors to enjoy. Many of these works are by prominent Ohio artists and depict Ohio subjects, from Hocking Hills landscapes to former Supreme Court Justices to county courthouses.
Two nationally acclaimed artists whose work is included in the Supreme Court's contemporary art collection recently spoke at a lunch event in the building with Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer.
Aminah Robinson and Nicholas Hill joined Mary Gray, director, Riffe Gallery, and the Court's art consultant, for the event.
Robinson and Hill discussed the personal and professional influences on their art and shared what they would like others to consider when looking at the pieces on display at the Ohio Judicial Center.
