Saskatchewan Craft Council

Saskatoon, SK

Directions: This takes place in the parking lot in back of the Saskatchewan Craft Council building. You can enter via the Gallery, using the north door on Broadway Avenue or via the alley that runs parallel to Broadway Avenue, and can be accessed via 10th Street East or Main Street.



Offered in English.


There are three distinct parts of a shadow created by any light source interacting on an opaque object and the fun is in playing with these shadows: umbra, penumbra, and antumbra.

Explore a miniature city of architectural works detailed with glow-in-the-dark silkscreen patterns and paint, created by SCC artist Monique Martin and her students.

The shadows created by structures in a city are as unique as the structure itself. This interactive display will allow you to manipulate that structure using light sources.
