AIA/WA Testifies Against Removing Art Funding in Public Buildings

The AIA/WA Executive Director, Stan Bowman, testified against House Bill 1376 Feb. 9 before the House Capitol Budget Committee. HB 1376 would have removed the requirement, during the 2009-11 biennium, that .5 percent of the total capital project cost of public buildings be used for artwork.

The AIA/WA made the point that art in public buildings is not just an amenity to building design but an integral part of the building that enhances the space for the employees and public who use the building.
