LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - There's only one day left to take in our community's compassion display at the Pump House Regional Arts Center in La Crosse.
Part of the Compassion Project, which features 6,000 art tiles created by students in the La Crosse School District, will become a traveling exhibit.
Each one of the tiles is an individual concept of what Compassion means to them. The display at the Pump House went up May 2 and will be taken down starting Sunday morning.
Organizers are thrilled with what it's done. So far more than 4,000 community members came to see it and enough donations have come in that it's making a profit. But the message it's spreading is even better.
"It wasn't just a community wide art project, it was an idea, and it was a train of thought that got everybody talking, not just the students and the families, but local communities and big businesses," said EmmaLee Eckardt of the La Crosse Public Education Foundation.
More than 500 students donated their canvasses back to the foundation to create ten traveling exhibits for businesses and community organizations to display.
