City of Little Rock, Arkansas
Riverfront Park Grand Entrance Sculpture
The new sculpture placement is a 50 ft in diameter circle at the base of the Junction Bridge. The area
presently is landscaped. This area should be considered a blank canvas for your proposal.
The Junction Bridge is directly to the north of the site and the buttress of the bridge is on a rock
formation that is Little Rock’s namesake. To the east is our renovated amphitheater and to the west is
an open-air History Pavilion with a small stage attached to it. To the south is an area that is presently
being redesigned as a new proposed entrance into Riverfront Park.
The proposed site should be and will be the focal point of the newly redesigned entrance into Riverfront
Park from Clinton Avenue. The proposed sculpture should be bold in its appearance and act as an
attraction to bring people into the park. It will be a magnet luring people into the park and also help
them become acclimated to using all the other amenities in the park especially the Vogel Schwartz
The design of the sculpture and the utilization of the space can take on any characteristic that your mind
can construct. It can be intimate, bold, or traditional. There is no pre-conceived idea about how this
space can be enhanced.
We look forward to your ideas on how to utilize this space. Please think outside of the box when you
submit your proposal. If you have any questions about this space, please contact me directly.
