Madera County Courthouse Art Project
The Madera Superior Court selected 13 art pieces created by high school students from throughout the county to display at the new Madera Courthouse. The selected art pieces are part of a permanent collection that spans all four floors. The two-dimensional artwork represents a cross section of cases heard by the Superior Court during the last 100 years in Madera County. To prepare students for their depiction of the cases, members of the Madera County legal community presented detailed case information to high school art classes. With the exception of photography, a variety of media was used.
