It may be the largest art installation of its kind, or at least the most unusual; six 4’ x 4’ artworks, each representing aspects of Manitoba’s agricultural past, present and future, from Ox and plow to a spectacular rendering of the St. Boniface Hospital Albrectsen Research Centre (home of the Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Resaerch in Health and Medicine, or CCARM). Not made from acrylic or oil or watercolor paint, just… out of beans.
And Manitoba-grown beans, to boot.
The artworks were produced by the Communications & Media Services team at St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre for a CCARM conference held this past summer. 4 of the 6 canvasses are on display (and on sale, with proceeds to St. Boniface Research) at Kesay Design Centre, 693 Taylor Avenue, Winnipeg.
We are so happy to be selected to show these two fantastic pieces from the “Breaking new ground” collection at our design studio! Created by Bill Peters, Robert Blaich, and Joseph Pilapil, of the Communications & Media services department at St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre. These pieces were made from pulse crops grown in manitoba and studied in CCARM labs. The proceeds of these two pieces will be used to help support the ground breaking research at the St. Boniface Hospital Albrechtsen Research Centre! #breakingnewground #art #groundbreaking #stbonifaceresearch #support #manitoba #research #charity #artwork #crops #local #winnipeg #traditional #classic #highend #homefurnishing #design #designgoals #interiordesign #designinso #lifestyle #inspiration #style
