Steamboat Creates is inviting artists to submit proposals for artwork to be showcased inside the new building at Oak and Sixth Streets, with a theme of “being human,” and looking for submissions that feature abstract interpretations of humanness that encourage curiosity and reflection.

A committee will review the proposals, which are due by Oct. 20. The request for proposals can be found online at
