‘Percent for Art’ Policy Brief

State percent for art policies are mechanisms for enhancing the built environment and for making public spaces more appealing, useful or accessible through the incorporation of artworks. With these policies, legislatively created in almost all cases, a small portion of the budget for construction or renovation of state buildings is set aside for the purchase, installation and/or maintenance of public artwork, which is usually installed on the grounds of the capital project.
