I was selected for Jury duty this week!
I only mention it because I posted some photos to my Instagram of the St. Paul City Hall and Ramsey County Courthouse. Which is an AMAZING Art Deco masterpiece. Built in 1932 and originally intended to last “fifty years or so” when it was planned, well … the depression hit. And all of a sudden labor was pathetically affordable. And so were materials.
So the city planners hired artists and bought massive amounts of rare wood and stone, and decorated the living hell out of city hall.
It’s wonderful. It’s gorgeous.
I highly recommend googling it and taking a look.
