BRISTOL, Va. -

Music brings a lot of people to downtown Bristol, and soon art will enhance that experience.

Arts in Public Places revealed a permanent public installation of two bronze sculptures of musicians. They'll be placed across the street from the new Birthplace of Country Music Museum. 

It'll be an interactive sculpture inviting the public to become part of it.

The sculpture was made possible with a gift from the Marcia and Marvin Gilliam Foundation, and guided by Bristol's Art in Public Places project.

It's scheduled to be completed August 1, just weeks before the museum is expected to open.
