Helping Hands mural to be placed in downtown La Crosse

A mural planned for a downtown La Crosse parking ramp will soon be in place.

Crews will begin work to install the Helping Hands mural on the Main Street Ramp.

The art work will be placed on the corner of the ramp by 3rd and State Streets.

Members of the Arts board are excited to bring more art to public spaces in the city.

“This is the first of hopefully many, many murals that we’ll see popping up all over the city of La Crosse // There are plans, not necessarily by the board but the board definitely is going to try to promote murals,” said Doug Weidenbach, Chair of the La Crosse Arts Board.

The mural is expected to be completed by the end of next week.
