Percent for Art Projects
Percent for Art Projects are commissioned and installed through the Oregon Arts Commission (OAC). The State of Oregon requires that legislatively-approved capital construction and renovation projects spend at least one percent of the direct construction costs towards public art. These projects, from inception to installation, are facilitated through Capital Projects and Construction (CPC) in coordination with OAC and campus departments located in that facility. The artwork is generally sited in areas with maximum public exposure.
