Mendel's Murals is an entrepreneurial, non-profit public arts group. We enable Saskatoon public art projects which might be difficult for individuals or institutions. We initially came together to save the Perehudoff murals commissioned by Fred Mendel for his Intercontinental Packing Plant offices, which were slated for demolition in 2008. Our success in that project motivated us to continue pursuing public art works meaningful to Saskatoon. We are not affiliated with the Mendel Art Gallery.
Every great city has its great achievers. Honouring them can be a source of civic pride. William Perehudoff and Fred Mendel were two of Saskatoon's greatest achievers. Their impact on our city has lasted decades and will last decades more. These murals tell the story of how these two men came together at a time when they were just beginning to have a larger impact on our city. The art is beautiful, and it is an important part of Canadian art history, but the murals are also important as a legacy of the generosity and talent of two great people who helped make Saskatoon what it is today.
