College unveils mural that depicts Aboriginal culture.

At the end of January, Lethbridge College unveiled a mural commissioned by Delia Cross Child depicting the rich heritage of the First Nations, Metis, and Inuit culture. Cross Child, an art teacher at Kainai High School on the Blood Reserve, attended Lethbridge College for general studies before going on to earn her education degree at the University of Lethbridge. Her work has been showcased at the Glenbow Museum, Walter Phillips Gallery, and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery. The Alberta Foundation for the Arts awarded the college a Post-Secondary Institutes Project grant of $10,600 for the mural.
