A prominent piece of artwork in La Crosse's downtown has seen better days, and city officials want your help in deciding what to do with it.

The piece, known as 'The Scroll', is location near the La Crosse Tribune's offices, 401 3rd Street North.

Dale Kendrick is the artist. The sculpture "represents the beginning of the written word, literacy, the first newspaper and relates to the Egyptian Scroll," according to the La Crosse Area Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Work is currently underway to dismantle the sculpture. Some of the pieces were already coming loose, or falling off completely.

'The Scroll' could be renovated.

Another plan is to re-purpose many of sculptures components, like the top and bottom scrolls, donor bricks, and the dedication plaques.

Members of the La Crosse Arts Board will be hearing suggestions from residents at the board meeting at their Sept. 9th meeting.  It's scheduled to be held on the 3rd floor of City Hall at 7:30 a.m.
