YORKTON: LEGO CITY
July 3 to August 31, 2018
Artist Reception 2pm Sunday, July 8
YORKTON: LEGO CITY is a fun-filled celebration of bricks! Filled with the sheer number of LEGO structures assembled by local LEGO Meister Kelly Litzenberger, it's also a learning opportunity and a chance to appreciate Kelly's re-creations of historic and current Yorkton buildings.
Commissioned by Godfrey Dean Art Gallery, YORKTON: LEGO CITY is one of the 200 exceptional projects funded through the Canada Council for the Arts’ New Chapter initiative. With this $35M initiative, the Council supports the creation and sharing of the arts in communities across Canada.
YORKTON: LEGO CITY features three paintings of historic Yorkton buildings by Jeann Spilak, plus photographs and artifacts on loan from the Wynyard Bakery & Cafe.
Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is also pleased to help celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Saskatchewan Arts Board. Congratulations to the Arts Board, one of the gallery's two major funding agencies. May you enjoy 70 more!
