Judicial portrait unveiled
Judge Ryan Tira unveils his official portrait as his family looks on during a ceremoney in front of the Lycoming County Courthouse on Monday.
The Lycoming Law Association has been the moving force in creating or preserving judicial portraits of every judge who sat on the bench in the 29th Judicial District.
The older judicial portraits adorn the walls of the LLA office and the more recent portraits are displayed in the Jury Lounge on the second floor of the county courthouse.
“In 1966, the LLA’s Executive Committee passed a motion to assume responsibility for securing and paying the cost of painting and framing portraits of county judges. Today, we celebrate the LLA’s continuation of this tradition with the unveiling of Ryan Tira’s judicial portrait.” (Don Martino, 2021 LLA President)
The LLA commissioned Whitney Hart Photography to produce Judge Tira’s portrait and a sitting was held shortly after Judge Tira took the bench. However, because of covid, the LLA was not able to unveil the portrait until now.
