WDM Exhibit January 15 - May 2016
The Museum joins with the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada, and many other countries that will be embarking upon a multi-year commemoration of the war’s Centenary. Our living memory of that awful conflict has now disappeared. Nevertheless, the level of interest in the Great War and its ramifications today remains vibrant.
Wheat Field Mural
February 10 - April 19, 2016
By Monique Martin and Michael Peterson
This incredible 62.7 m piece was created at Culture Days 2015 by the citizens of Saskatoon and area. Over 1,000 pieces of wheat were printed at Culture Days, and after that, the print toured to several local schools and businesses. The mural depicts a rural wheat field created by stamping wheat using linocut blocks. The length of the print represents the length of the southern border of Saskatchewan. Handmade linocuts of wheat were created by Grade 4 and 5 students at Georges Vanier Catholic Fine Arts School and Grade 4 and 7 students at St. Maria Goretti Community School. Over 1,000 people participated by printing a piece of wheat on the mural.
