Capitol Artists

The Pennsylvania Capitol is not only a modern working center of state government, it is a historic and artistic masterpiece. The Capitol's artwork was executed by some of the best-known artists and artisans of the early twentieth century — all of whom contributed their talents in the effort to produce the "Palace of Art" envisioned by architect Joseph M. Huston. The resulting tapestry of spiritual and literal history depicted in murals, sculpture, tiles, stained glass, and architecture provides inspiration to visitors as well as the men and women who serve in public office.
