Artwork with a water theme installed in new federal courthouse

Three new pieces of artwork greet those arriving at the Christopher S. Bond United States Courthouse in Jefferson City.
Installation of the three murals at the federal courthouse finished Friday, with artist Betty Woodman supervising as her work found its permanent home.
Woodman, 82, was selected to provide the original pieces by a commission through the U.S. General Services Administration. Woodman said she visited the courthouse in January to see the space and determine the best location within the courthouse for the three commissioned pieces, which are now mounted in the front wall of the lobby.
