The four corners created by the columns that support the rotunda were painted by an unemployed artist during the Great Depression, as a way to provide work for him. The paintings also illustrate Utah’s early history. The four statues, also located on those corners, are meant to have elements that symbolize hope, timelessness and wisdom as they represent the state government’s focuses – Immigration & Settlement, Land & Community, Science & Technology, and Arts & Education. #saltlakecity #utah #homecoming #20yearsinthemaking #spontaneousadventures #godesbrostrips #setitgood (at Utah State Capitol)
