LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (CBS NEWSPATH) – A big baby blue statue by City Hall in LaCrosse still remains more than a year later.
The statue was only suppose to be in La Crosse on a loan for about a year then sent back to its German artist.
However, for some reason the statue hasn’t moved and no one really seems to be in a hurry to return it.
When folks are asked about the status of the statue, even the City’s Parks Recreation Forestry Director had a hard time keeping a straight face.
Yeah, you know I mean it’s amazing how many people know that he’s there. The police department has been able to incorporate him into their facebook posts every now and again. You know he’s kind of become a celebrity of La Crosse.,” said Jay Odegaard, Director of La Crosse Parks, Recreation and Forestry.
Right now the only concern about the statue is whether it can hold up to the severe weather in the area.
The city is in contact with the artist, but right now the baby blue statue is expected to stay right where it is for now.
