“Where Our Paths Cross” is a commemorative art project commissioned to explore Indigenous, settler, and newcomer relations in Saskatoon. The artwork is intended to convey that Saskatoon is in Treaty Six Territory, is homeland of the Métis, and is a welcoming community to peoples from all over the world. Finalists have been provided the option of siting their artwork in one of two locations: River Landing South or Victoria Park.
The three finalists will present their concepts and preferred location, as well as answer questions from the community. A specially-appointed selection committee will take the community’s feedback into consideration when making the final selection for the winning artist. This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada. Click here for additional details.
