3 Justice Mural in Allegheny County Courthouse by Vincent Nesbert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Walking inside the 125 year old Allegheny County Courthouse in Pittsburgh feels dungy, dark and medieval. After reaching the grand stairway on the second level, however, you are delighted by seeing murals by Vincent Nesbert, including this one called “Justice.” They were painted from 1931 – 1935 as part of the Federal Works Progress Administration’s Public Works of Art Project. Apparently, when the artist learned he would not be paid, he completed the works anyway. The model for this mural, Dorothy Duke, did not see the completed art for 67 years after it was finished.
