Courthouse River Walk

January 6, 2009

How many Obsidians does it take to interpret the art at the Wayne Lyman Morse United States Courthouse? On our self-guided tour, five of us shared our thoughts and tried to make sense of the “Jury Pool” on the 2nd floor and “Stare Decisis” on the 3rd floor. The latter was the most challenging with the abstract map of the Willamette River located on the roof representing the river of law and the illuminated painted light boxes with illegible handwriting in the hallway showing the history of the law and Oregon’s development. From there we walked to the Amtrak station to see the Marker of Origin and then along the roaring Willamette River. We appreciated the dry day and each other’s artistic observations.

Hikers were Lynda Christiansen, Janet Jacobsen (leader), Jim Pierce, Julia Richardson and Suzanne Steussy.
