The Lloyd D. George U.S. Courthouse creates a symbolic corner within downtown Las Vegas. Its giant articulated column is a powerful totem that will no doubt become a signature in a city of signs and symbols. In addition to symbolizing a federal presence, the building responds to its urban surroundings, establishing a design precedent for large-scale public buildings.

Located in the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas only receives a few precious inches of rainfall each year. Artist Howard Ben Tré was influenced by the shortage of water in the desert environment of the nation's most arid city. Vortex, Stream and Confluence are three monumental black and white granite benches situated on the sidewalk of Las Vegas Boulevard. The artwork is a metaphor for three forms of moving water—the vortex, the stream and their confluence. The vortex is the form that water takes as it surges from the ground, and the stream is the form water takes as it moves from place to place. The confluence is the intersection of the two.
After receiving his commission for the new Lloyd George Courthouse, artist Willard Dixon explored the surrounding area, touring sites like Lake Mead and Valley of Fire. Dixon's visit to Red Rock Canyon inspired the eponymous mural consisting of two large oil on canvas paintings. In these beautiful and vibrant paintings hanging in Jury Assembly, Dixon captures the details of color and light of the Nevada desert.
