If you had $20,000 to build a 10-foot metal sculpture along the Atlanta Beltline what would you make? 

"An $18,000 profit."

"Jesus with an A-Town fitted hat and a Braves tomahawk."
- Katrina LaShawn at facebook.com/clatl

"An adult jungle gym-style piece that people could interact with. Or something that moved with the wind."
- Phab Missk at facebook.com/clatl

"I guess I would choose a giant 40 with stuff that looked like beer in it."
- Rebecca, in Cabbagetown

It's true, the Atlanta Beltline has a request for proposals up on its website for a "railroad artifact sculpture." Submissions are open to anyone in the Southeast and the organization is willing to fork over up to $20,000 for the commission - that's five times the amount of Art of the Atlanta Beltline's most expensive project in 2012.

So, we want to know: If you had $20,000 to build a 10-foot metal sculpture what would you make?

Every week we ask our friends on Facebook, Twitter, and the comments section below a pressing question, and the best answers appear in print. Make sure you follow us @cl_atlanta or are a fan on Facebook so you can be part of the conversation.
