La Crosse history will get an artistic new twist in the next couple of years thanks to a unique art and history project.
[Art]ifact is a joint venture of the UW-La Crosse History Department, the Pumphouse Regional Center for the Arts and the La Crosse County Historical Society.
Students in a UW-La Crosse history class are in the process of selecting 15 artifacts that have ties to La Crosse’s history. The Pumphouse will select 15 people who will give a new artistic interpretation of the artifact. The new art and the historic artifacts will go on display at the Pumphouse in the spring of 2016.
