On this mural, you will find the faces of ordinary La Crosse residents which include: the college-aged artist, the group of Hmong women, the Ho-Chunk elder, and the German frau serving steins of beer. You will find their faces are among physical elements which represent La Crosse: the bluffs, Mississippi River, a riverboat, and other elements of nature.
The goal of this mural was to inspire more people to be a part of and enjoy the art community. The mural was funded by the city, a National Endowment of the Arts grant, and private donations.
