A well-known work of art will be coming back to La Crosse’s riverfront soon…and we’re not talking about Hiawatha.
The city arts board has learned that the eagle sculpture by Elmer Petersen is expected to return to Riverside Park sometime early in the summer, after several months of restoration.
“Mr. Eagle was in a little rougher shape than they first thought when they took him down,” said
Flottmeyer says it’s going to look “really great” when it returns.
