Education & Community

Arts education is critical to academic success – it helps build confidence, empathy, and social connectivity, and should be available to all children and youth regardless of income or background. We are committed to enriching the La Crosse community’s quality of life by generating opportunities for participation in the arts, partnering with schools, collaborating with other mission-based organizations, and driving regional economic prosperity.
