Public Art Policies

Public Art policies, sometimes known as "Percent for Art" policies are a means by which municipalities designate resources to commission or otherwise acquire artworks intended for installation in a public setting. "Percent for Art" refers to a designated percentage of the budget of a public building project that is set aside to provide funds for commissioning of a work of art.

Although public art policies usually share certain common practices, municipalities will often tailor a policy to suit the specific needs of that community. On this page you will find links to the public art policies of municipalities in the capital region.
