Oregon Percent for Art

Passed in 1975, Oregon's Percent for Art legislation mandates that 1% of the direct construction funds of new or remodeled state buildings with construction budgets of $100,000 or more be set aside for the acquisition of art work. The Oregon Arts Commission oversees the Program and maintains archives of slides, photographs and related documentation for the works of art selected.

Encompassing over a 30-year period, the database offers access to over 5200 items. The collection offers glimpses of 1545 unique artwork creations, visual narratives of the creative process, and documentation.
