Join us in our mission to enhance the quality of life in the Coulee Region by maintaining the Pump House as a cultural center, and by promoting a wide range of visual, literary, and performing arts.

Funds generated through ticket sales, events, classes, memberships, and donations help us support this mission, provide free admission to all galleries, tuition sponsorships, and diverse arts programming for all ages.

The Pump House Regional Arts Center was recently recognized for its efforts and support of the arts, culture, and creativity within La Crosse! The Creative Community Champion Award was presented by Create Wisconsin to the city of La Crosse, the City Arts Board, and The Pump House.
