LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Following a discussion about public artwork in Louisville, Mayor Greg Fischer has announced new steps to set principles for those works.

The discussion about public art began after the statue of Confederate officer John B. Castleman was vandalized in Cherokee Triangle.

Among the city's plan is the creation of an advisory committee to establish principles for public art and monuments. That committee will begin work in January and it's expected to take about six months to complete. The public will be invited to attend those committee meetings.

Other aspects of the plan include creating a grant opportunity and an art exhibition at Metro Hall.
