La Crosse’s park board is expected to deal with art history at its monthly meeting Thursday night.
That is, the board will hear about the history of some artwork located in city parks, and ideas for preserving items that are not in good shape.
Earlier this year, the city arts board conducted a review of some iconic pieces of art in the community.
The report recommended some repairs at the Eagle sculpture in Riverside Park but said no public tax money should be used for repairs to the Hiawatha statue.
The arts board also suggests nighttime lighting for several popular pieces of artwork.
Also, the Lyra metal sculpture in Burns Park is due for a new coat of blue paint.
Lastly, the report included suggestions for the Dancers sculpture near the Pump House, although the board of public works already approved a relocation of the sculpture to the Weber Center property across the road.
