1% For Art Opportunities

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.

See Nebraska’s 1% for Art Public Collection.

The number of projects generated each year is dependent on legislative appropriations for one) new construction more than $500,000 and two) remodeling or renovation of a public building more than $250,000. Buildings meeting these criteria must be open to public access 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.
