PCUH Currency Exhibition on Final Stop of Western Canadian Tour

January 11 – February 20, 2016 | Godfrey Dean Art Gallery, Yorkton, Saskatchewan

 The PCUH travelling exhibit on currency from the 1917-20 revolutionary period is on the last leg of the Western Canadian tour. The final stop on a seven city tour, the exhibition has been travelling since 2013. Don Stein, Executive Director of the Godfrey Dean Gallery, has worked with the PCUH to bring a number of the Centre’s exhibitions to Yorkton. “We have worked with the PCUH in the past. It is always a pleasure. The programming made available to us helps us connect with the large Ukrainian community in southeastern Saskatchewan. We are delighted to host this exhibit, which is visually appealing and particularly relevant in light of the recent events in Ukraine. It speaks to an audience eager to know and learn more about Ukraine’s historical and artistic past.”
