Saskatchewan Treasure Hunt for Hidden Tyndall
Hand-polishing 100 cubes of Tyndall stone might sound like a daunting task to most of us, but artist Terri Fidelak (right) plans to do just this for her latest Saskatchewan art project.
Terri Fidelak is one of eight Saskatchewan artists participating in the Saskatchewan Legislative Building's Artist-In-Residence Program. This is just one way the province is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina.
Each stone is numbered and engraved with a special message that encourages the finder to participate in this artistic process and return the stone to the Legislative Building in Regina. With smooth cubes of stone in hand Terri has begun to distribute each and every one of them throughout Saskatchewan communities and provincial parks. As the pieces return they will become part of her permanent installation that represents the Saskatchewan peoples' dreams for the future.
Keep your eyes peeled for the opportunity to take part in this "epic treasure hunt"! If you want to stay up to date on this project as it moves forward follow along on Terri’s blog, www.hiddentyndall.com.
The Legislative Building’s Artist-in-Residence Program concludes with an unveiling and celebration of all eight artists' permanent works of art at the Legislative Building on December 5, 2012. Watch for more details at www.opcc.gov.sk.ca/leg100/artist.
