A monument to the history, culture and commerce of Ohio, the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center embodies the spirit and vision of Ohio’s most precious resource—its people.

Art and architecture are integrated in a functional, state-of-the-art office building that conveys Ohio’s history. The inscriptions and symbols carved in marble and bronze, and muscular and mythic murals adorning ceilings and walls, celebrate all who shaped the state, including native peoples, explorers, soldiers, jurists, workers and artists. The foundation helps protect and preserve the distinctive architectural character of the Moyer Judicial Center while highlighting the historic and educational value of the center as the home of Ohio’s judicial branch.

Foundation activities support the building’s contemporary fine art collection, the visitor education center and the forum on the law lecture series.
