City taking applications for “Moment” art

Brad Williams



By the start of February, local artists will find out whether they’ll be represented in a La Crosse project to tell stories of the year 2020 through art. 

Submissions are now being accepted for the project called ‘The Moment,’ sponsored by the La Crosse arts board. 

It’s not just a way to capture history on canvas, or in a photo. 

Arts board vice-chair Dillon McArdle says the people whose works are chosen will get paid by the city, as much as $1000 for an individual artwork.  

All the pieces to be submitted must fit a 24-by-30 inch display space on a wall. 

The deadline is January 15th, and the ‘Moment’ display is scheduled to be shown starting in March.          

McArdle says the items displayed will be wall hangings, and they must have been created since the start of the pandemic. and they must represent some aspect of this year which has seen illness, presidential politics, and racial demonstrations.
