Four finalists presented their proposals for a Justice Center sculpture to the Arts in Public Places Advisory Board Wednesday.
After a closed door discussion, the board voted that Jemez Springs artist Troy Williams receive the commission for “The Scale of Justice.” The recommendation should go before the county council for consideration sometime in October.
The board was looking for a piece that would honor the 12 jurors and the diversity of the juror pool here. The Request for Proposals (RFP) specified that the piece had to include one- or two-dimensional figures representing jurors of all ages and backgrounds, it had to be durable and sturdy and could not have a shiny finish. The budget parameter was $50,000 to $100,000.
