A new public art sculpture will commemorate Nashville's role in the civil rights movement and the Metro Arts Commission is asking for designs.
The work will be on Fifth Avenue North between Church and Union near the Arcade and the Kress building.
It's the same area where college students protested against the city's segregated lunch counters in the 60s.
Metro hopes to have the sculpture in place by late next year or early 2014.
The deadline to submit entries for the sculpture is Sept. 7.
If you are interested in submitting a design for the sculpture, you can send your submission to this website.
