The Art in Public Places Program (AiPP) was established by the Colorado Legislature in 1977 to create enjoyment and pride for citizens of the state by placing artwork in publicly accessible locations in state buildings. Colorado’s public art statute requires an allocation of one-percent (1%) of capital construction funds for new or renovated state buildings to be set aside for the acquisition of works of art, the process of which is administered by Colorado Creative Industries (CCI). The program also oversees the Creative Capitol program, which showcases artwork by Colorado artists in the State Capitol Complex, and highlights Colorado relevant themes.
