44.1 Introduction

The Art in State Buildings Program was enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa (PDF iconIC 304A.8-14) to provide for the inclusion of fine arts projects in state building construction projects in cooperation with the Iowa State Arts Council. The requirement states that one half of one percent of the project total cost (not construction cost) shall be expended for the acquisition, preparation, and installation of fine arts elements. Responsibility for implementing the Art in State Buildings Program in compliance with Iowa law is hereby delegated to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) for UIHC capital projects. Accordingly, the following protocol does not apply to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics projects.
