La Crosse Compassion Project
Since October 2013, students within the La Crosse School District have been creating works of art for the La Crosse Compassion Project. Each student was given a 6 x 6 inch canvas to individually show what compassion means to them.
All 6,000 pieces of art work will be on display at the Pump House Regional Arts Center May 2 through June 28. The event is free and open to the public.
About 500 UW-La Crosse students, staff and faculty will also share their idea of compassion during a special campus exhibit on Friday, May 2 at the Port ‘O Call, Cartwright Center-Gunning Addition. There will be a special exhibit at 4:30 p.m.
Students from Aquinas will have their Compassion Project artwork on display at the La Crosse Public Library. There will be an open house on Friday, May 2 from 4- 6 p.m. The tiles will be up for a few months.
