Murals Unveiled


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The La Crosse Performing Arts Center unveiled four new works of art. The four brick murals represent what audiences can expect when the construction is complete this January. The murals are designed by local artist Jill Rippe and constructed by Nebraska brick worker Jay Tschetter. The four pieces depict song, dance, comedy, and tragedy. Executive director of the La Crosse Performing Arts Center, David Kilpatrick, hopes the murals will add to the theatre experience.

Kilpatrick said, "The show really starts as you walk up and approach the building. And looking at a building gives you a sense as to the kind and the quality of what you're going to find inside. So, just merely walking up and seeing this art is going to tell you there's something special inside."

The murals took 12 weeks to sculpt and another 4 weeks to cure.
