The Department and local authorities operate a Per Cent for Art Scheme through which a percentage of construction budgets are devoted to the commissioning of an associated piece of art.

The Department co-ordinated a review in 1994 of Public Art in Ireland and the various Per Cent for Art schemes in operation. The group published a report in 1996 which made a number of recommendations to improve the range and quality of public art in Ireland.
