New in 2019, Doors Open Pittsburgh presents "Specialty Tours" offered throughout the year!
In 2019, DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh has presented these Specialty Tours:
Join us for the upcoming "Federal Courthouse Tour"
For its first collaboration, DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh and the Office of Public Art organized a tour of the Federal Courthouse to see artwork that is not usually available to the public. Historic murals within the courthouse include Stuyvesant van Veen’s Pittsburgh Panorama and Howard Cook’s Steel Industry.
These murals were commissioned by the Treasury Section of Painting and Sculpture, established within the Procurement Division of the Department of the Treasury’s Public Works Branch in October 1934 and was funded by one percent of each construction appropriation, which included public buildings such as post offices and courthouses.
In addition to seeing these works, tour-goers will see contemporary artwork commissioned by the courthouse which include murals of local landscapes, tapestry, and learn about the courthouse’s art gallery program. Moreover, participants will learn about the history and development of the building, see historic courtrooms and more contemporary ones, and learn about how courtrooms are designed.
