Two maquettes for a public art project will on view in the Mendel lobby this weekend. The maquettes were created by designers Adrian Stimson, Jean-Sebastien Gauthier and Ian (Happy) Grove for a public sculpture to be installed next year at River Landing. The Whitecap Dakota First Nation selected this design team to create a monument commemorating the Prairies contribution to the War of 1812. The maquettes will be displayed at the Mendel from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, December 13; and from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, December 14 and Sunday, December 15. The artists will be available to speak with the public from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, December 14.
Sunday, December 15 at the Gallery Shop, from 2-5 p.m. These one-of-a-kind pieces incorporate naturally beautiful, semi-precious stones. Colleen will be on hand to discuss her work and help you find a perfect gift for yourself or someone special.
