Indigenous Art Exhibit at SJC

27 April 2022

Please join St. Joseph’s College in sharing the art of Ovide Bighetty, from the 17 prints of the Creator’s Sacrifice Collection. Bighetty was an Indigenous artist from Pukatawagan First Nation (`Fishing Place’ in Cree) on the Canadian Shield of Northern Manitoba. In the Woodlands Cree style, Bighetty explores Christian themes. This display will help all focus on our roles in Reconciliation, and will be on display leading up to the Lac St. Anne pilgrimage.

St. Joseph’s College joins with the Interfaith Chaplaincy at the UofA, and St. Stephen’s College, to co-sponsor this art exhibit. The 17 prints of this collection will be on display in the St. Joseph’s College foyer and student lounge for all to enjoy, from July 6th to August 1st.
