30 Senate Chamber in Utah State Capitol in Salt Lake City, Utah

In the north section of the Utah State Capitol on the third floor is the Senate Chamber. The upper house consists of 29 members. They each represent about 95,000 people in their respective districts during four-year terms. The multi-panel mural (a polyptych) above the speaker’s chair was painted by A.B. Wright and Lee Greene Richards in 1916. The landscape represents Utah Lake. This became historically significant in 1776 when two Spanish priests – Atanasio Domínguez and Silvestre Vélez de Escalante – were the first Europeans to discover Utah’s largest lake. In the upper left corner is Ancestral Home. The art was created by Keith Bond in 2006.
