Saskatoon has been ramping up its public art in a major way lately, specifically when it comes to murals. I’m sure there’s more than double this many new larger-than-life pieces this year but I went out and captured a few notable new ones for you. Kudos to the artists and funding organizations for recognizing the importance of public art in a city, and helping to bring some of the big boring walls to life.
Saskatoon has an abundance of art galleries showcasing local artists. Art Passport YXE is your guide to seeing and experiencing visual arts culture in Saskatoon. The best part about this program is that it is totally free! So grab a passport at one of the participating locations and be on your way.
Saskatoon has a reputation of housing more restaurants and bars than any other city of its size, and to solidify our rep it seems fitting that a few more new spots fire up this spring. I’ll give you the run-through of some recently opened downtown spots to check out if you’re looking to try some new flavours.
