A mural and mosaic tabletops are proposed for the Allen Brothers Steak and Seafood Facility at 211 West Cutting Blvd. in Richmond.

Prologis purchased the property and leases it to Allen Brothers. Private developers must provide one percent of the building development costs as a public art contribution. Allen Brothers aims to satisfy the requirement with this project, which will include a Richmond-themed mural along the wall, along with mosaic tabletops for outdoor staff area.

In May of last year, Allen Brothers presented the proposal to the Richmond Arts & Culture Commission (RACC), which approved it and launched the process to seek submissions from artists.

At tonight’s meeting, the Richmond City Council is set to decide whether to approve appropriating $250,000 in private developer funds to carry out these art projects, which aim to celebrate the local community and enhance the property.

The contract includes $210,000 with Hungry Ghost Productions to install the mural, and $40,000 to Wilma Wyss to install the mosaic tabletops.
