In three community planning meetings, a group of more than thirty community members and artists helped developed a call for proposals for the Arches project. The City of Roanoke Arts Commission is excited about this community-driven process. We can’t wait to see what projects artist teams put forward to create a stronger place on the greenway under the magnificent arches of Memorial Bridge.
Goals include the creation of a gathering space that attracts and celebrates the diversity of our community though a participatory art project. The project might be one big installation or a combination of several components.
