Master Plan

The ASU Public Art and Design Review Council prepares a master plan for public art at ASU and identifies funds to be used for the Public Art program. All major capital construction projects will have works of art placed. Major capital project budgets will include one-half of one percent of the total construction cost for public art.


Acquisition of Works of Art

The ASU Public Art and Design Review Council may evaluate and purchase existing works of art or commission new works for the project in accordance with procedures established by the director of Purchasing and Business Services. Artwork may include, but is not necessarily limited to:

  1. fiber art
  2. glass works
  3. mosaics
  4. murals
  5. paintings
  6. photographs
  7. prints
  8. and

  9. sculpture.

Considerations for Decision Making

The council is expected to consider, in making its decisions, the nature of the structure and its intended use. The commission may appoint a committee, which may or may not have members of the commission on it, to make recommendations to the commission for any specific project. The council is expected to invite comments regarding its proposed plans for public art from:

  1. those who will be housed in the structure
  2. the vice provost/president who will have staff or functions housed in the structure
  3. those who are housed in close proximity to the structure

    and

  4. other interested members of the campus community, if appropriate.

The ASU Public Art and Design Review Council also explores potential sources of funding of public art for existing facilities. When funding becomes available from such sources, the council decides on the type and placement of artwork to be acquired with the funds. If the university accepts a donation with specific instructions attached to it, the council respects those instructions.


Council Membership

The ASU Public Art and Design Review Council is appointed by the provost of the university and is composed of several members and a chair. One of the members may be from outside the university.
