Nebraska’s 1% for Art law has been in effect since 1978, and has generated more than $5 million in artwork for Nebraska’s state buildings, state colleges and the University of Nebraska system. The number of projects generated each year is dependent on legislative appropriations for one) new construction in excess of $500,000 and two) remodeling or renovation of a public building in excess of $250,000. Buildings meeting this criteria must be open to public access in order for a project to take effect. An Art Selection Committee is then established for each project to determine the criteria for suitable locations, art forms and artist eligibility.
