The Eureka Courthouse Gallery Hall
The Eureka Court House Gallery Hall is a hall on the South side of the Eureka County Court House
in Eureka. The hall was created as a result of rennovations to the courthouse and is now being used as an art space. Traveling art shows
are hung in this gallery for varying periods of time. We invite you to come enjoy the exhibits as they travel through the historic courthouse.
We are also in the process of assembling a permanent Courthouse Collection.

Honest Horses: A Portrait of the Mustang in the Great Basin
The Eureka Courthouse Gallery presents "Honest Horses: A Portrait of the Mustang
in the Great Basin" featuring photographs by Paula Morin depicting an uncommon view of the significance of the wild horse to the Great Basin. Wild horses conjure
up an image of mythical proportions. Not only are they a reminder of our country's emergence as a nation, their role in the evolution and history of the
American West and their impact on Native American culture is profound.
The original photographs and narratives were made during 1999-2001, during which time Paula Morin photographed wild horse herds in their natural surroundings and recorded
her discussions with people whose lives are most intimately connected with them. A synergy of image and word portrays the intricate realtionship of wild horses
to the culture and landscape of the Great Basin -- from yesteryear to the present. The exhibition contains 21 giclee prints made from Morin's original handpainted
black and white photographs.
Curated by Paula Morin for the Nevada Arts Council, "Honest Horses" exhibit is part of Nevada Touring Initiative, supported by the National Endowment for the
Arts and the Nevada State Legislature. The Nevada Arts Council is a division of the Nevada Department of Tourism and Cultural Affairs.
