A Call for All Lawyer-Artists


 

A Call for All Lawyer-Artists

 

As construction of the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Center is nearing completion, the decision has been made that all of the art adorning the judicial center will be created by the talented members of the Denver Bar Association. Some say there is nothing quite like the thrill of delivering a powerful closing argument; others claim the rush of drafting a winning brief is the tops. Everyone agrees, however, that the most exhilarating of all legal experiences would be seeing your handcrafted art hanging from the walls of Denver’s newest hallowed hall of justice. A variety of artistic mediums will be accepted, so dust off your canvas, crayons, oil paint, glue sticks, yarn, sculptures and uncooked macaroni noodles, and start getting creative. The works of art should be inspired by the theme, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Art!” These artistic displays will enable patrons of the judicial center to deeply appreciate the artistic talents of our local attorneys. This, in turn, will bolster the universal truism that all great lawyers are simply talented artisans wielding the law with the flourish and grace of the painter’s brush. The members of the Docket Committee will select the works of art to be displayed. The submission period opens April 1.
