A traveling exhibit featuring a mosaic of President-Elect Barack Obama will be on display in the City Hall Rotunda from Jan. 14 through Feb. 29.

The mosaic is presented through the Municipal Building Commission and the City Hall and Courthouse rotating exhibit program, which seeks to educate, inform and promote city and county programs, history and art to city and county staff and the general public.

The Municipal Building Commission is the steward of the City Hall and Courthouse building. The building is an architectural treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information on the exhibit and the Municipal Building Commission, visit
