Art in State Buildings Program

As a State of Iowa institution, University of Iowa Hospitals & 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 & 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 & 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.
