The Commissioning of Artworks Act came into force in Estonia in 2011. The law establishes the principle that a part of the construction budget of a public building must go into the commissioning of artwork for that building. This Act regulates the obligation to commission works of art related to the construction of public buildings with the purpose to improve the public space aesthetically. For the purposes of the Commissioning of Artworks Act, a public building is a building meant for public use to which third persons have total, partial, permanent or temporary access in addition to the members of staff and officials of the agency. The total price of an artwork, which must be commissioned by contracting agency, shall be at least 1% of the construction price (without VAT) but not more than EUR 65 000.
