Bryce Pettit would install 20 life-sized animals including bear, deer, birds and fish on the medians. The foundation for the sculptures would be made of stacked landscape stones to symbolize the mountains and swooping lines of bent steel to symbolize the Animas River.

Cindy Atchison is proposing to create “And the River Rolls On,” with 26 steel waves out of oxidized steel panels. The community would help design the shape of the waves and the symbols that would adorn them.
