44.1 INTRODUCTION.
The Art in State Buildings Program was enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Iowa (IC 304A.8-14) to provide for the inclusion of fine arts projects in state building construction projects in cooperation with the Iowa State Arts Council. The requirement states that one half of one percent of the project total cost (not construction cost) shall be expended for the acquisition, preparation, and installation of fine arts elements. Responsibility for implementing the Art in State Buildings Program in compliance with Iowa law is hereby delegated to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics (UIHC) for UIHC capital projects. Accordingly, the following protocol does not apply to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics projects.

44.2 APPLICATION.
The program shall apply to projects that meet the following profile:

44.3 ART ON CAMPUS COMMITTEE AND SELECTION OF ART.
The Art on Campus Committee will receive assistance and support from Facilities Management and will work in close collaboration with the Campus Planning Committee, from which it may seek input and advice as appropriate, in fulfilling its charge. The committee is chaired by the Director of the Museum of Art.

44.4 FUNDING FOR WORKS OF ART.
For qualifying projects, the approved budget shall contain a line item that clearly states the amount that the project shall contribute to the acquisition, preparation, and installation of the works of art. This contribution shall be considered to be fixed, except in extraordinary circumstances. If the cost of the recommended selection exceeds the budgeted amount, additional sources of funding shall be identified from outside the project prior to action on the recommendation.
