The AIA program has been modified over the years, most recently in 2020 to align with Executive Order (E.O.) 13934 issued July 3, 2020, Building and Rebuilding Monuments to American Heroes. As mandated by E.O. 13934, the AIA program prioritized the commissioning of artworks that portray historically significant Americans or events of American historical significance, or that illustrate the ideals upon which the Nation was founded. Priority was to be given to public-facing monuments to former Presidents of the United States, and to individuals and events relating to the discovery of America, the founding of the United States, and the abolition of slavery. Such works of art were to be designed to be appreciated by the general public and by those who use and interact with Federal buildings. When an artwork commissioned by GSA was meant to depict a historically significant American, the artwork was required to be a lifelike or realistic representation of that person, not an abstract or modernist representation. The AIA program has been modified in 2022 to align with E.O. 14029, Revocation of Certain Presidential Actions and Technical Amendment, which revoked E.O. 13934, and to support the goals of E.O. 13895, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The AIA program continues to commission works of art from living American artists. One half of one percent of the estimated construction cost of new or substantially renovated Federal buildings and U.S. courthouses is allocated for commissioning works of art. With the implementation of the 2022 policy, the AIA program actively seeks to commission works from the full spectrum of American artists and strives to promote new media and inventive solutions for public art. GSA has awarded over 500 commissions to artists with established careers and artists of local and regional prominence. In support of the AIA program’s goal to commission the most talented contemporary American artists to create works for the nation’s important new civic buildings, it is necessary to identify those artists. The National Artist Registry (Registry) offers the opportunity for artists across the country to participate and to be considered for commissions.
