The Art of  Revolution until May 24, 2014 - Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is presenting a timely exhibition of posters that were used during the early stages of the EuroMaidan protests in Kyiv, Ukraine. Designed and created for mass distribution through the medium of the private printer, they testify to a deep desire for change and are symbolic of the best impulses of a society mobilizing in its own defense. A selection of 50 posters plus commentary are on exhibit, organized by the Prairie Centre for the Study of Ukrainian Heritage in Saskatoon. Admission is always free! 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 1-4 p.m. Saturday, 49 Smith St. E., Yorkton, SK www.deangallery.ca
