The La Ronge Arts Council and a University of Saskatchewan graduate student are working together on a caribou-themed community art exhibit.

The exhibit will be displayed at Mistasinihk Place in La Ronge for the entire month of September.

Max Pospisil is a U of S doctoral candidate studying caribou in La Ronge and she said she wanted to work on the exhibit so that more people will learn about caribou.

“I’m just hoping for the exhibit to educate people about caribou,” says Pospisil. “There are woodland caribou all the way through the boreal forest down to just north of Prince Albert and I think a lot of people don’t know about that.”

Pospisil adds that they are looking to the public for art related to caribou to be included in the exhibit.

Submissions must include a paragraph about the art and caribou with their pieces.

Pospisil will be accepting registration forms to have pieces included in the exhibit until Aug. 28.

Participants will have to have pieces at Mistasinihk Place on Sept. 1 between 4-6 p.m. and picked up from 4-6 p.m. on Sept. 30.
