Mendel's Murals helps Install Artwork

Mendel's Murals had the honour of helping provide the installation for "Many Hands make Light Work" at the White Buffalo Youth Lodge on 20th Street in Saskatoon. Many Hands Make Light Work is the result of a partnership between artist Miranda Jones and the Children's Discovery Museum, with financial assistance by the City of Saskatoon,Saskatchewan Lotteries, and the Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technology. Jones took silhouettes of art made by the children, as well as their hand prin
ts, and spun them together into a piece called Many Hands Make Light Work. The piece casts a complex shadow across the lodge floor that changes through the day. Organizers of the art project hope the piece will help children in the community feel pride in their community. The project organizer, Children's Discovery Museum, is working to create a world-class children's education facility in the current Mendel Art Gallery building after it is vacated.
