Duval County Courthouse Lawn Art


“These Truths, Voice of Jacksonville”, designed by sculptor Cliff Garten, will feature two flowing ribbons of stainless steel to frame the entrance to our Courthouse.

Those ribbons will also have writings from the foundational texts of our democracy and five local poets and authors engraved on its surface. These words will be illuminated at night, telling our story as a community, and our continued push toward justice and equality.

Through the addition of this monumental public art installation, the three-acre lawn of the Courthouse will be transformed into an active urban park reflective of the values of our community.
