The 550,000-square-foot Birch Bayh Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, managed by GSA and located one block north of Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis, is named for former Indiana State Legislator and U.S. Senator Birch Evans Bayh. Built in the Beaux Arts style in 1905 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the Bayh U.S. Courthouse is a steel-framed, flat-roofed structure clad with Indiana Limestone, resting on a gray granite foundation. The original richly ornamented interior design elements remain intact, including mosaic tile ceilings, a cantilevered marble staircase, stained glass windows, and decorative artwork and furnishings. The major historic interior spaces of the building are the first-floor lobbies and connecting corridor and the original courtrooms in the southeast and southwest corners of the second floor.

#DYK? Housing about 1,200 federal workers, the 432,000-square-foot Edward Zorinsky Federal Building, managed by GSA, is named for the late Edward Zorinsky, a former Omaha mayor and U.S. Senator from Nebraska. Design and energy-saving features of the building include a three-story atrium and a 4-foot-wide daylight corridor around the perimeter of the operating levels. These areas allow the building’s workers ample access to natural sunlight. In addition, exterior lighting shelves reflect light into the building’s core at the ceiling level, while exterior light louvers control excess light and glare from entering the building. The Zorinsky Federal Building provides top-tier office space, energy-efficient operations, security for employees, and structural durability for the next 50 years and beyond. Learn more at GSA.gov/region6.

There are only a few more days of March and #WomenHistoryMonth.Today the artist spotlight is on Gladys Caldwell Fisher (1907–1952). Fisher moved to Denver when she was a child. She began the study of sculpture during her high school years and received scholarships that allowed her to study in both New York City and Paris. Fisher eventually returned to the United States and then Denver where she taught sculpture at the University of Denver and the Denver Art Museum. She specialized in the sculpture of animals in stone and hardwood.

Fisher is best known for her two limestone Rocky Mountain sheep created as part of a Treasury Relief Art Project commission for the Byron White United States Courthouse in Denver, CO in 1936. City and County of Denver Government

Liz Larner’s artwork for the Byron Rogers Federal Building and Courthouse plaza in Denver, Colorado exemplifies the #femaleartist’s long standing investigation into unorthodox materials and forms. Public Jewel is a stone and bronze sculpture that highlights Larner’s skillful orchestration of line, color, volume, and form to produce new relationships among viewers, the sculpture, and the surrounding environment.

Working with a geologist from the Colorado School of Mines, Larner spent a year collecting precious and semi-precious minerals mined from Colorado. The stones that Larner collected include Colorado Yule marble, petrified wood and coconuts, and fluorite and rhodochrosite crystals. These stones are meant to highlight the spectacular natural beauty and complex geological history of #Colorado. City and County of Denver Government #womenhistorymonth

Jenny Holzer has completed three notable commissions through GSA's Art in Architecture program. She created Allentown Benches: Selections from Truisms & Survival Stories in 1995 for the Edward N. Cahn Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in #Allentown, #Pennsylvania. Another artwork, Installation for the U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building, from 1999, is at the Robert T. Matsui U.S. #Courthouse in #Sacramento, #California. And her most recent commission is For the FDA, completed in 2012 for the FDA Headquarters at the White Oak Federal Research Center in #SilverSpring, Maryland. For each artwork, #JennyHolzer inscribed a series of written excerpts on benches or paving #tiles. By isolating these words from their original contexts, the inscriptions take on new meanings depending on the reader. Each of us brings our own set of experiences to these words, and in this way, the artist challenges us to question whether words are truly set in stone, or if their meanings are ever-changing. One of the inscribed benches on the @fda campus includes a 2003 quote from the FDA commissioner that could have been written yesterday. In light of this past year and how the pandemic has changed our lives, these words carry a new significance today:

"Any notion that your life might be insulated or protected from world events is gone, forever. You can't defuse pathogens as if they were a bomb; you contain them with surveillance and quarantine and care; you prevent the disease they produce with vaccines, and kill them with medicines, but many people still don't understand. They assume that a national security issue can't be a #health issue and a health issue can't be a national security issue.”
