Now that the Big Indian statue is gone from La Crosse’s Riverside Park, should another piece of art take its place?
The city arts board led an on-line discussion Wednesday night about new artworks which could be considered for the park.
Arts board chair Jennifer Williams describes what a task force has in mind: “an iconic and dynamic artwork to be situated in Riverside Park, that will engage the public intellectually, physically, and visually.”
The listening session also promoted plans for artworks to portray life in the year 2020 through two-dimensional art, such as paintings or photos.
Dillon McArdle of the arts board hopes to get proposals from artists who have gone without income this year.
