Weeks ago I had appointments in OshKosh and got out of the car for a look at the Winnebago County Courthouse. Built in 1938 it is 5 stories of Art Deco Moderne delight. The top penthouse floor used to house a jail, but alas I did not get a tour.
Built of Indiana limestone, most of the building has a smooth look but the geometric surrounds framing the bronze doors at the entranceways are highly ornate. Alfonso Ianelli fashioned these bas-relief designs with references to Mayan art, depicting stylized images of Native Americans, families, agriculture, industry, and heads of county officials.
Bronze and marble highlight the interior, including the interesting floor design above.
Also seen in OshKosh was this lovely mural. Nice to see the native people featured so prominently for a change!
