Second mural proposed for Main Street parking ramp in La Crosse



Drivers on 3rd Street in La Crosse have seen a mural on the side of one busy parking ramp for four years now. The artwork at 3rd and State is called “Helping Hands.”

Another mural could soon be added to the Main Street ramp. The La Crosse arts board has a proposal from artist Natalie Hinahara to paint large yarrow and blue vervain flowers on the ramp’s 3rd Street entrance.

The estimated cost is just over $6,000. The painting would be completed by Aug. 1.

The arts board could vote Friday on the proposed flower painting at the ramp.
