Sadly, the colorful Justice Through The Ages mural at the soon-to-be-demolished Colorado State Judicial Building will not be finding a new home anywhere after all. A few weeks ago we reported that it had been discovered that the mural had been painted on asbestos panels and that its future was in doubt. Recently, project and state officials have concluded that the mural cannot be saved and that it will be destroyed. Here’s an article from Law Week Online (thanks to Vicki for the link) about the mural’s fate.

Both buildings are being cleared for the new Ralph Carr Colorado Judicial Complex, which will occupy the entire block and look like this:
The new state judicial complex is scheduled for a 2013 opening.
