LEGO Holiday Special
Kelly Litzenberger
Last day tomorrow!
November 25 to December 9, 2017
 
LEGO® allows users to create their own world, and then interact in that environment. The multi-layered process of play involves not only a high degree of imagination; it requires attention to detail, concentration, patience, and teamwork.
 
For any toy to sustain hours of play, it has to harness the imagination. LEGO is wildly successful in doing this. By giving children tools to build their own toys – as opposed to providing them with a ready-made toy – LEGO empowers children to become the authors of their own play.
 
Kelly Litzenberger is part of the new generation of LEGO builders that source parts from the worldwide community to create unique architectural renderings. A greater portion of Kelly's 20s were spent operating Revolution Snow and Skate (1998-2004) the first action sports retail store in Yorkton. Raised in Melville and Yorkton, Kelly grew up skateboarding, riding BMX and playing records,
 
Kelly's recreation of the Revolution Show and Skate store and location was recognized by the official LEGO IDEAS website as a staff pick of the day. The building may be gone (formerly located at 3rd Ave and Broadway) but this slice of Yorkton history lives on in the LEGO world, and is now shared with their global community!

What a whirlwind of activity
Yorkton's Canada 150 Mural Mosaic Project
600 people of all pages painted tiles in just over 2 days
 
As one of the dozens of communities across Canada participating in the Canada 150 Mosaic projectthe City of Yorkton and Godfrey Dean Art Gallery were proud to host painting sessions and inviting everyone to participate.
In just over two days, hundreds of school children and family members came to the Godfrey Dean Cultural Centre for one-hour workshops to create 600 tiles. At the peak time, there were over 70 people in the same session!
Schools included Dr. Brass, Dreambuilders, St. Michael's, Columbia, Yorkdale and St. Alphonsus plus community groups like Boys and Girls Club, SaskAbilities and the Cadets.
This mosaic portrayal of Yorkton consists of individual tiles painted with designs that visually depict what living in Yorkton means to each of us as individuals. The tiles form mural that's 8 feet tall and 14 feet wide that links us to the rest of Canada.
Unveiling the mural is coming in December
