The sculpture should speak to at least one of these themes: Natural assets of the area, celebrate the rich history of music made in/inspired by Memphis, honor the stories and experiences of the diverse communities and leaders in Memphis history, or explore the possibilities of Memphis as the city moves forward into our third century. Final artwork should complement the aesthetics of the site and the goals of the Memphis Convention Center renovations. https://www.indyartsguide.org/classified/public-art-sought-for-memphis-convention-center-atrium/
