2017 ORS 276.075¹
Public policy of acquiring works of art for state buildings

The Legislative Assembly recognizes the responsibility of the state to foster culture and the arts and its interest in the development of artists and craftsmen. Further, the Legislative Assembly recognizes that the visual arts contribute to and provide experiences which are conducive to the enrichment and betterment of the social and physical environment. Art has enabled people of all societies better to understand their community and individual lives. Therefore, the Legislative Assembly declares it to be the public policy of this state to expend a portion of expenditures for capital purposes for the acquisition of works of art to be displayed in state buildings. [1975 c.472 §1]
