Ramsey County Courthouse

The Ramsey County Courthouse is an Art Deco masterpiece and a great place to sketch. I had to do some sketches of a court hearing today. You can see the courtroom sketches I did today at Below is an extra sketch of the three-judge panel hearing the case in a remodeled and not deco courtroom. Also a sketch I did yesterday of huge, alabaster sculpture by Carl Milles . Interesting fact from the self-guided tour brochure:

The statue rotates on a motorized turntable, 66 degrees to the left and 66 degrees to the right. It takes 2-1/2 hours to complete a rotation.
