In 1982 Andy Warhol submitted a design for the 1-percent-for-the-arts competition associated with construction of the Tacoma Dome. It wasn’t to be. Exit133 has a great look at the history of the Tacoma Dome and the public art controversy. Frivolous, contentious or misplaced it created a great debate for public arts programs. Tacoma was one of the first cities to implement a 1 percent program for new public buildings. The controversy surrounding the Dome art eventually caused the city to rescind the program. There is now a groundswell effort to place the Tacoma Warhol Flower onto the top of the Dome.
