Jack Archibald, Paradigm Shift

Public Art Collection


In 1985, the Legislature passed the Utah Percent-for-Art Act, which designates that 1% of construction costs (capped at $200,000) of new and/or renovated state public buildings is added to the project for the purpose of commissioning, maintaining, and conserving site-specific art at, on, or in the facility. There are more than 300 pieces in the Utah Public Art Collection, including a broad range of media, from textiles and glass to stone and metal monumental works.
