The Boston Panels

 

The Boston Panels is a permanent art installation created by Ellsworth Kelly, widely regarded as one of the most important abstract painters, sculptors, and printmakers working today. In a marriage of art and architecture, Kelly’s brilliantly-colored panels act as beacons that draw viewers through a series of dramatic architectural vistas in the Courthouse – the soaring entry rotunda, the light-filled Great Hall, and the sweeping galleries.

 

 

DISCOVERING JUSTICE

 

Since its founding in Boston in 1998, Discovering Justice has been teaching young people about law, justice, and democracy with innovative civic education programs that connect courtrooms, classrooms, and communities. By being headquartered in the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, Discovering Justice has a special and unique connection to the Courthouse which enables the utilization of courtrooms as classrooms for both students and adults. Through a continuum of educational programs from grades one through eight, Discovering Justice educates and empowers children, primarily youth from underserved communities, to respect the rule and role of law, understand the fundamental importance of good citizenship, and stand up for justice throughout their lives.
