Public art matters. It reflects Anchorage’s unique cultural vibrancy. It humanizes the built environment. And most important, it inspires moments of reflection in the midst of our busy daily lives.
The Municipality of Anchorage’s 1% for Art Program earmarks 1% of the construction budget for public building projects’ commissioned art. The program is based on state law and has been active since 1978. The Anchorage Museum has gained many significant works of art through this program.
