The city is soliciting proposals for an outdoor public art project to accompany the planned Brown’s Island Dam Walk.

The city put out a call for artists on Tuesday, advertising a $200,000 budget for the project.

The city’s Public Art Commission suggests some themes for the work:

− Enhance the natural elements of the James River.

− Create a destination or gathering place to draw people to the river.

− Stimulate thought, conversation and creativity for viewers.

− Reflect diversity of culture and heritage.

The deadline for submissions is Sept. 5, and the city is holding what it calls pre-submission informational webinar on Aug. 7.
