We’re proud to announce the start of a brand new annual competition for local artists. Your original artwork could be turned into a banner and displayed outside of the La Crosse Public Library! The winning artist will receive a $1000 cash prize, generously provided by Dick Record. Submission deadline is December 30, 2018. Contest is open to all residents of La Crosse County ages 18 and over. Submitted artwork will be reviewed by the city Arts Board, or a committee of same. Please read the official contest rules and artist prospectus before submitting your work. 

Our goal is to promote the work of local artists (one per year) in conjunction with our "Libraries are for Everyone" diversity and inclusion banners in the hope of fostering an increased sense of community, engaging new ideas, and promoting understanding, reading and learning.
