Leg 100 Artist-in-Residence Program

As part of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building 100th Anniversary celebration, eight Saskatchewan artists had the unique opportunity to explore the history and significance of the building through their own artistic practice involving community-engagement and legacy artwork. The artistic inspiration for the residency components is the vision, construction and reality of the Legislative Building, a building that represents the character, ambitions and spirit of Saskatchewan people.

Each of the artists spent two weeks in residence at the Legislative Building, engaging the public in their project. The artist hosted collaborative art making opportunities which encouraged participation and cultural exchange. The legacy artwork component of the program provided each artist several months to create a work of art that is displayed in a designated alcove in the rotunda area of the Legislative Building.

Laura Hale, the residency coordinator, oversaw the program. The program consisted of short residencies with different guest artists and resulted in one legacy artwork or display for each of the eight alcoves in the Rotunda of the Legislative Building. Hale and the selected artists were provided space in the Legislative Building in which to work as well as carry out public engagement activities and youth art initiatives.
