Pierce County's One Percent for Art ordinance directs publicly-funded construction projects, with costs exceeding $100,000, to allocate one percent of the project budget for public art.
This program supports our mission to increase access to the arts for all Pierce County residents through a lasting legacy of publicly held artwork.
