John Pugh, the main artist of the project, says he is proud of the work, and he feels he has a great connection with the city getting to know the history.

La Crosse's own Dustin Luecke was an MC at the event and introduced the Mayor, Tim Kabat and three-time Grammy Award winner Bill Miller. The Mayor and Bill Miller talked about how great La Crosse is and how welcoming the people are.
