Since 1993, Taiwan has been promoting policies on public art, which regulated new constructed public architectures to allocate 1 percent of funding on installing art pieces. For more than a decade, public art transforms from a secondary role that beautify architectures and environment to the most important element that influences the aesthetics on Taiwan public spaces and public buildings. Furthermore, the uniqueness in Taiwan’s public art regulation is at the law rules to have include public participation in public art, thus making a main advocator in Taiwanese aesthetic education. In order to record the results and main transformation of this regulation, the Council for Cultural Affairs, Executive Yuan publishes the Public Art Yearbook annually since 1998, which becomes an important archive to examine, research, and discover Taiwanese public art works.
