Cochise County Courthouse Art – Bisbee AZ

Description

“The Cochise County Courthouse contains several pieces of New Deal art. ‘A Cavalcade of Cochise County History’ is depicted in six bas-reliefs that line the entryway. R. Phillips Sanderson was funded by the Federal Art Project under the Works Progress Administration to produce these plaster sculptures. On the second floor landing hangs another WPA commission, an impressive relief map of Cochise County created by artist George Sellers. Forty-four pounds of screws, nails, tacks, and over 2,000 cups of plaster were used to create the map.”
