Criteria for major and minor works on state capitol grounds.

Major and minor works placed on the state capitol grounds shall:
(1) Maintain the dignity of the state capitol grounds, its existing memorials, grounds, and buildings, and surrounding environment;
(2) Preserve views and vistas of the capitol buildings, Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountains;
(3) Be consistent with the organizing principles and policies of the master plan, relevant subcampus plans, and any other subcampus plans reviewed by the department and the capitol campus design advisory committee and approved by the state capitol committee;
(4) Reflect the rich diversity of Washington's people, and be nonpartisan in nature;

(6) Honor individuals or events of lasting significance for the people of the state of Washington, as reflected by broad public consensus;
(a) Major commemorative works shall not serve solely to memorialize an individual. Major works of art may be gifted to the state or dedicated in memory of an individual so long as the nature and primary purpose of the work remains artistic or aesthetic, to serve as an object of public enjoyment rather than as a monument to an individual.
(b) Minor works shall honor individuals or groups of individuals only after the 10th anniversary of the individual's death or the death of the last surviving member of a group, when the enduring, historical, statewide nature of their achievements has been demonstrated and broadly acknowledged;
(c) Major or minor works commemorating an event, including a military event or conflict, may be proposed during the lifetime of those who engaged in it, but not sooner than the 10th anniversary of the end of the event.
