About This Event
Artspire La Crosse
June 9 – 10, 2017
Artspire Public Art Project
Local and regional artists are invited to submit one piece of 2D work, existing or original, to be juried in to the Artspire Public Art Project, then voted on by the general public to display at City Hall.
The selected pieces will make up the 2017-18 Artspire Public Art Project display, which will be unveiled at La Crosse City Hall Saturday, June 10. Winning artists will not only have their work displayed in a highly visible, public area, but will also receive monetary awards, and a ribbon for their work. The City Arts Board will provide security hangers for selected work.
