Beaux Arts and Blueprints: The Allen County Courthouse, a Treasure Among Us

April 23, 2016 - June 12, 2016

This fusion of art, architecture, and history presents the wonders of this beaux arts treasure and melds the worlds of fine art and architecture through original blueprints from its 1902 construction.

This downtown Fort Wayne landmark was a gift to future generations from visionary leaders who wished to express in art and architecture the dignity of the government, the supremacy of the people and the grandeur of the law. The Allen County Courthouse is recognized as a National Historic Landmark for its original murals and sculptures, scagliola faux marbling, unique tile floor designs and abundant stained glass.

Produced in collaboration with the Allen County Courthouse Preservation Trust and the Allen County Board of Commissioners
