The Dallas Bar Association dedicated five murals in the garage of the George L. Allen, Sr. Courts Building on December 16.

The bar association raised private money to fund the artwork, which now covers the walls near the entryway to the courthouse. The yearlong project stemmed from the vision of DBA President Jerry Alexander, the organization said in a press release.

Local artist Steve Hunter designed, painted, and coordinated the work on the murals and Booker T. Washington Arts Magnet School students painted one of the murals as a part of a class.

“Now the entryway for litigants, jurors, attorneys, and visitors coming from the parking garage into the George Allen Courthouse will present a much more positive first impression of the excellent legal system that we all strive for in that courthouse,” Alexander said in the release. “The courts work hard in that building and the jurists and all that appear before them deserve this beautiful entryway to justice.”
