Colorful art adorns Fort Bend County Justice Center

Judge Teana Watson unveils the artwork of juveniles.
The artwork of juveniles who had been housed at the Fort Bend County Juvenile Detention Center is on display on the first floor of the Fort Bend Justice Center.

The unveiling of this beautiful display of talent took place May 20, with members from the Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation Department, elected officials, judges and FBISD personnel in attendance.

During a visit of the Detention Center, County Judge KP George discovered the juveniles’ beautiful artwork and came up with the idea to display it in the Justice Center. Everyone in attendance agreed that artistic expression is valuable to society and should be displayed for the public to enjoy.

“Moreover, it is the hope that we will begin to recognize the talents and excellence of our youth, even those who have made mistakes” Judge Watson – Chair of the Juvenile Board, stated.

DA Brian Middleton, a supporter of youth initiatives also spoke about the County’s Expose Excellence Program, which is designed to expose youth and promote and encourage their various talents.

The Fort Bend Justice Center is open to the public and located at 1422 Eugene Heimann Way, Richmond, Texas 77469.
