Percent for Art Program
In 1975, the Alaska Legislature passed the Percent for Art in Public Places statute requiring the expenditure of one percent of the capital construction costs of public buildings for the acquisition and permanent installation of artwork. The Percent for Art Program is managed in conjunction with the Department of Transportation to achieve the following objectives:
-to provide access to works of art in public spaces;
-to offer a variety of visual experiences in varied styles, methods and medium to further humanize our man-made surroundings with the artistic statements of living artists;
-to provide a supportive working environment and the opportunity for personal creative accomplishment;
-to contribute to the development and recognition of a professional artistic community;
-and to accomplish broad cultural goals by introducing new visual ideas to the general public. www.eed.state.ak.us...

I don't think that sounds like a bad program. But 100,000 all in one place? They probably could of placed sculptures all throughout the town.
