The government of Saskatchewan is preserving the drawings of some of their most storied architectural designers.
An exhibit called Artful Conceptions, composed of architectural sketches, was unveiled at Government House on Monday.
Executive Director of Archival Programs & Information Management Lenora Toth says this exhibit features drawings from some of Saskatchewan’s most prestigious collections.
“From the most part, they’re from the Van Egmond and Storey collection, and the Clemesha and Portnall collections.”
Toth says the drawings themselves are magnificent for several reasons. Most notably, they’re 90 years old and some of the sketches are of structures that came to fruition.
“Some of them are of buildings that were actually built and are still standing.”
