Art in State Buildings Program

As a State of Iowa institution, UI Hospitals and Clinics participates in the Art in State Buildings Program. Under Iowa law, a portion of the cost of major state construction projects (one half of one percent) is earmaked for the acquisition and presentation of fine art.

UI Hospitals and Clinics supports the policy of purchasing many works of art to ensure a wide variety of artwork to meet the needs of the diverse hospital audience. By selecting a greater number of art objects, Project Art is able to place works throughout most of the public corridors, reception areas and family lounges.

Acquisitions are approved by the UI Hospitals and Clinics' Art Acquisitions Advisory Committee, which reviews purchases for quality, suitability to the hospital environment, credentials of the artist, and appropriateness of the work to the collection.
