AGO 1987 No. 13 >  April 24, 1987
LEGISLATURE - ART - DEPARTMENT OF GENERAL ADMINISTRATION
ABILITY AND AUTHORITY FOR REMOVAL OF ART IN THE WASHINGTON STATE SENATE CHAMBER (1) While the Washington State Senate may request removal of artwork in the Senate Chamber, the actual removal is subject to the approval and cooperation of the Department of General Administration. (2) Minimal risk of financial exposure would exist if the artwork in the Senate Chamber is removed in accordance with the applicable statutory provision. (3) It is the responsibility of the Department of General Administration to determine whether and where the artwork can be hung following removal from the Senate Chamber. (4) We find no basis to support the granting of injunctive relief to prevent removal of the artwork in the Senate Chamber under the contract between the Department of General Administration and the artist.
