University of Northern Iowa: Art on Campus 

Contributors: University of Northern Iowa: Rod Library, Digital Collections

The UNI campus features many large outdoor sculptures. Most of these works are the result of Iowa Code 304A.10, which requires that one half of one percent of the budget for new or significantly renovated state buildings be devoted to the purchase of works of art.

Over the last thirty years, local and nationally-known artists have worked in various media to produce the large pieces scattered around campus. The installation of some pieces has provoked storms of critical reaction. Other pieces seemed to fit so well into the landscape that few people noticed them.
