Taking down the Compassion Project

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A community display of compassion was taken down Sunday.

The Compassion Project featured artwork from students of the La Crosse School District, showing their idea of compassion. Those students created more than 6,000 tiles for the project.

The display opened at the Pumphouse Regional Arts Center back in May. Since then,. more than 4,000 people from our community have stopped by to see it.

If you haven't had the chance to see it, you might still have another opportunity. "Because of the enthusiasm, because of the public's interest in this whole project we decided we wanted to try to keep it alive and keep it going and so we got permission from a variety of the students and parents to use their tiles in future exhibits," said David Stoeffler, Executive Director of the La Crosse Education Foundation.

Organizers say 300 to 500 of the tiles are being kept for a traveling display.
