Western Australian artists are contracted to deliver exciting artwork for major new public buildings under the State Government’s Percent for Art Scheme.
The Percent for Art Scheme requires up to one percent of the construction budget for new works over $2 million, to be spent on artwork.
The scheme is a State Government initiative that started in 1989. It is managed by the Department of Finance in partnership with the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries ˗ which is responsible for arts policy in the State.
