Art by Merced High students goes up at courthouse

May 16, 2013 

The Merced County Superior Court on May 3 unveiled in the old courthouse four paintings by Merced High seniors.

The unveiling was part of the court's Law Day Educational Program. The theme for the artwork, "Realizing the Dream: Equality for All" was based on the American Bar Association's Law Day theme.

According to Superior Court Chief Executive Officer Linda Romero Soles, the students' artwork reflected their creativity and vision of the Law Day theme.

Judge Donald Proietti thanked the teachers and students for contributing their artwork for visitors to enjoy at the courthouse.

The murals will be displayed for two years in the courthouse, located at 627 W. 21st St. in the main lobby.

Soles said the court will continue to work with the Merced County Office of Education so every school in the county will have the opportunity to participate in the annual event and display artwork in the courthouse.

Soles thanked 12th grade students Helen Lee, Nicole McDonald, Alfonso Pulido and Cheng Thor for their talent and dedication to completing the murals, in addition to high school faculty members Julie Rivard and Matt Bogard.
