LA CROSSE, Wis. - The La Crosse Performing Arts Center will unveil locally-designed murals sculpted into the exterior of the new center on Wednesday, November 14.
The unveiling will take place at 1 p.m. at the site of the La Crosse Performing Arts Center, at Front and King Streets. The murals were installed a month ago, but they have been kept under wraps for the big unveiling.
The murals that will be displayed were inspired by the Greek muses of song, dance, comedy, and tragedy. The four sections are named, Soar, Delight, Despair and Sing. The murals were designed by local artist Jill Rippe and constructed by Lincoln, Nebraska-native Jay Tschetter. The murals were commissioned by the La Crosse Performing Arts Center, under the guidance of the Exterior Art Committee.
Construction for the La Crosse Performing Arts Center began last year on November 16. It's scheduled to open in January, representing collaboration between the La Crosse Community Theatre and Viterbo University.
