​New Building Merges Art and History
Among the many beautiful pieces of artwork in the new County Courthouse is the bell from the original courthouse building (pictured below), and a mosaic tile wall mural of the second Broward County courthouse. The mural piece contains thousands of tiles and was designed by a team of artists in Italy based on an original photograph of the courthouse and its majestic bell tower. When artists completed the design, the tiles along with assembly instructions were sent to the U.S. for assembly. Both pieces can be seen from the first floor of the new West Building.
