US District Courts - San Jose
Location: Federal Building, 280 South First Street, San Jose
2nd, 4th, 5th floor public areas; jury rooms, chambers hallways

Exhibits depicting the greater San Jose areas' history are on display in the public hallways outside the courtrooms on the 4th and 5th Floor  of the Federal building, and hallways leading to Jury Assembly and the Clerk's offices in the Federal Building in San Jose.

The 65-piece exhibit was installed in December 2008, located in the San Jose Federal Building on South First Street.

Additional historical images are displayed in the Court's jury rooms and Chambers hallways.

The judges of this local circuit selected the images for the displays, and also assisted with editorial review of the detailed narratives and captions accompanying each piece.

Each piece has been digitally restored from a variety of public and private collections including San Jose Public library, History San Jose, Oakland Public Library and California Images. Custom picture framing and installation was produced in San Francisco by Eco Framing.

New projects are currently in place for artwork for the 8 courtrooms, expanded historical exhibits, and artwork for the 12 3-foot diameter columns on floors 4 and 5.
