Art in Architecture: Richard Guy Walton was a prolific painter and photographer. His subjects ranged widely: the stark Nevada desert, his Comstock neighbors, Twain's Tom Sawyer, the Vegas Strip, ineffectual politicians, and studies of spatial issues that usually intrigue mathematicians. His mural Life Before the Pioneer Era hangs in the courthouse lobby.
