Public art adds enormous value to the cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality of a community. It is now a well-accepted principle of urban design that public art contributes to a community's identity, fosters community pride and a sense of belonging, and enhances the quality of life for its residents and visitors.
Public art and increased greenery in cities has a positive impact on public health, through the reduction of smoke, dust, CO2 and other pollutants all while adding beauty to the surroundings.
Plants and trees help to regulate air quality and climate, counter the warming effects of paved surfaces and reduce noise pollution levels. Thriving green spaces create habitats for wildlife, help cool our cities and connect people to nature.
We are currently looking at funding for local artists to paint electrical boxes downtown in an effort to brighten our city and show off our local creativity.
Banners and decorated Light Poles are perfect for beautifying our city or adding some seasonal cheer! See that extra layer of branding that gives Downtown La Crosse the edge locals and tourists are looking for.
