The original mural room at Intercontinental Packers is being recreated within the Sign Shop in the City Yards. The image transfer to panels has gone very well, although there have been many unanticipated hurdles. The panels preserve every crack and the texture of the walls as they were in their original building. The photo above shows the recreated mural room, which will be finished by Wednesday, Nov 17. Thereafter it will be disassembled, crated, and stored at City Archives until it can be shown. The University of Saskatchewan has expressed interest in exhibiting the room prior to its installation in the Art Gallery of Saskatchewan. Meanwhile, our fundraiser continues. We've already sold nearly half the prints, raising approximately $25,340.
