Looking at Courthouses Through a New Lens: Art, Architecture, and Justice in New York and Beyond
May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Presented by the NYS Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department and Historical Society of the New York Courts
Historic courthouses serve as the backdrop for society’s most consequential conversations. In today’s era of rapid social and technological change, and issues of diversity, we are faced with the thorny questions of how to contextualize the role of art and architecture in our public buildings. An esteemed group of legal and artistic thinkers gather for a thoughtful conversation exploring the First Department’s monumental courthouse off Manhattan’s Madison Square Park.
