The mural is a part of a larger project that will draw people down to the river and will feature the poem by Paul Lawrence Dunbar “On the River”.

The RFQ is the first three-phased process concluding with the installation of a single public art project with a budget of $12,000 for materials, design, and production, according to the release.
