Ohio Percent for Art ProgramPercent for Art Program

About the Program:

The Ohio Legislature recognized the state’s responsibility to foster culture and the arts and to encourage the development of artists and craftspeople. The result of this was Ohio’s Percent for Art legislation, which became effective July 1, 1990. The legislation provides funds for the acquisition, commissioning and installation of works of art for new or renovated public buildings with appropriations of more than $4 million. For these projects the law provides that one percent of the total appropriation will be allocated for the acquisition, commissioning and installation of art work. Since the legislation went into effect, more than 100 projects have been completed. The completed projects have brought public art into many areas of the state. Major cities as well as small communities have benefited from the program.
