Ohio Percent for Art Projects
In 1990, the Ohio Legislature, recognizing the state’s responsibility to foster culture and the arts and to encourage the development of artists and craftspeople, established the Ohio Percent for Art Program. The program provides funds for the acquisition, commissioning and installation of works of art for new or renovated public buildings that receive appropriations of more than $4 million from the State of Ohio. For these projects the law provides that one percent of the total appropriation will be allocated for the purchase of permanent public art. Since the legislation went into effect over 112 projects have been completed. Those projects have brought public art into many cities and small communities around Ohio
