Florida’s Art in State Buildings program (ASB), established in 1979, continues to highlight nationally and internationally recognized artists in its growing collection of diverse art. An amount of up to one-half of one percent (0.5%), not exceeding $100,000, of the state funds appropriated for a new building is set aside for the acquisition of public art for that facility.
The University of Florida’s Art in State Buildings program is a component of the state of Florida’s Art in State Buildings initiative. It is directed by UF’s Public Art Specialist and is overseen by the state’s cultural agency – the Division of Cultural Affairs.
UF’s Art in State Buildings program has a collection of over 170 works of art on campus which extends throughout the state. We are dedicated to growing the state of Florida’s art collection, helping Florida to become a national public art leader.
