New Statehouse Exhibit Includes Justice Theme

A new Ohio Statehouse exhibit that opened this week features eight major themes that chronicle democracy in Ohio and America, including one focused on justice.

Each theme is composed of quotations from notable Ohioans, Americans and Greeks. The justice portion includes a quote from the first woman to serve as a Supreme Court of Ohio Justice, Florence E. Allen, who said: “The attainment of justice is the highest human endeavor.”

Other justice quotations come from Aristotle, Betsey M. Cowles as president of the Ohio Women’s Convention, and Article I, Section 16 of the Ohio Bill of Rights.

The seven other themes of the exhibit are We the People, Equality, Inalienable Rights, Knowledge, Tolerance, Liberty and Participation. As phase three of the Ohio Statehouse Museum, the exhibit highlights the significance of the major themes that shine a light on democracy and illuminate the ideals of Ohio government.
