This unique museum opened in 2012 and is centered around a restored cellblock on the sixth floor of Maricopa County’s Historic old Courthouse – the Courthouse has been renovated to its 1929 grandeur. While visiting the museum you will get a sense of Maricopa County’s legal history, its court cases and important elements of the Rule of Law, including individual rights and liberties guaranteed in the United States and Arizona constitutions. To our knowledge, it is the only such museum in an active courthouse in the country.

 

THE MARICOPA COUNTY JUSTICE MUSEUM AND LEARNING CENTER IS HOSTING A 2018 CALENDAR ART CONTEST FOR ARTISTS AGES 5 - 12

THEME:  "Justice For All."  Pictures should reflect the artists’ visual representation of what justice looks like to them.  It may be a picture related to the law, our courtrooms or courthouses, judges, attorneys, trials, really anything related to the broad theme of justice for everyone.

HOW TO ENTER:  Artists between the ages of 5-12 are invited to submit hand-drawn, homemade artwork (hint: we like color, anything from crayon to paint is great) created on 8.5 x 11” white paper reflecting the theme.  The Calendar Committee will choose the winning artwork (up to 13 submissions), which will be featured in a 2018 calendar to be sold by the Justice Museum Board of Directors.  Contest runs from May 15, 2017 until June 15, 2017.  Submissions should be scanned at 300dpi or higher, and saved as a .jpg or .pdf file.  Artists do not have to be formally affiliated with MCBA or the Justice Museum Board of Directors to enter, but they do need to be between the ages of 5-12 on Monday, May 15, 2017.
