Percent for Art

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The term percent for art refers to a program, often a city ordinance, where a fee, usually some percentage of the project cost, is placed on large scale development projects in order to fund and install public art. The details of such programs vary from area-to-area. Similar programs, such as "art in public places", attempt to achieve similar goals by requiring that public art be part of a project, yet they often allow developers to pay in-lieu fees to a public art fund as an alternative.

Percent-for-art programs are used to fund public art where private or specialized funding of public art is unavailable.
