Artwork Sought To Decorate New Shasta County Courthouse

The new Shasta County courthouse has a construction budget of $175 Million, but not a penny of public funds can be used to purchase artwork to adorn the walls of the enormous building. Court officials are inviting photographers to submit images depicting the people and places of Shasta County for display. There are six categories of subject matter being accepted and the top three of each category may have their photos displayed as permanent artwork, with the photographer’s name displayed for proper recognition. The deadlines for submissions is April 30th. Details are at shasta.courts.ca.gov.
