Art in the Supreme Court

"Art in the Supreme Court" is curated by Associate Justice Marilyn Skoglund and Statehouse Curator David Schutz. Justice Skoglund has a B.A. in fine arts from Southern Illinois University. Justice Skoglund claims that having the artist’s eye has helped her becoming a better judge.

”Art in the Supreme Court” is a program that was started shortly after Justice Skoglund's appointment in 1997. One look of the large white walls she knew that it would make a perfect gallery to display large pieces.  Justice Skoglund then lobbied the other justices to turn the public lobby into an art gallery.

Housed in the public lobby, “Art in the Supreme Court” hosts mostly Vermont artists, who are selected by the justices.  Vermont State Curator David Schutz works with the justices. Mr. Schutz helps set the displays and works with the artists in showcasing their work. Mr. Schutz also pays attention to detail making sure the "Art in the Supreme Court' runs smoothly.  Every artist has a three month showing during normal business hours Monday-Friday 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.  The Vermont Supreme Court is located at 111 State Street, Montpelier, Vermont.
