The sign outside the Viterbo Fine Arts Center announcing future events is going to remain blank for the rest of this year.
The university has called off all of its public events for 2020, as the COVID-19 outbreak continues.
No arts events are scheduled now at Viterbo until January.
The school started cancelling its concerts and other performances on March 12th, and some of the events announced for last season have been rebooked for new dates next year.
Policies for social distancing and enhanced cleaning also are being developed at the Fine Arts Center.
The news comes just as Viterbo has been awarded an $8000 grant for arts projects from the Arts Midwest group in Minneapolis.
La Crosse’s Pump House has been given a $50,000 arts grant to help local artists who have lost income during the pandemic.
