    Inside the Civic Museum series presents An Evening with Kay Parley
    Wednesday, June 27, 7 pm
    Civic Museum of Regina 1231 Broad Street
    Seating is Limited
    FREE Event

    Kay Parley began drawing before the age of four, but it wasn’t until high school that she took any formal type of training. Although she studied to be a commercial artist, her love of the fieldstone homes and buildings from her childhood home in Moffat called her.

    With a nudge from her father, who thought they deserved to be preserved, she painted her first one in 1941. When the community of Moffat, south of Wolseley, planned an anniversary celebration, she embarked on her celebrated series of paintings. She also began writing a community history, They Cast a Long Shadow: The History of Moffat, Saskatchewan, which inspired sketches of the stone buildings to illustrate the book. She continued sketching stone buildings from all over the province.

  • College Avenue Campus Restoration - 2018 Lecture Series

    Tuesday, February 6, 2018

    The Artesian 2627 13th Avenue

    Join Heritage Consultant Donald Luxton for an illustrated talk on the historic College Avenue Campus, including its history, decline and current renewal. The history of the site dates back to the establishment of Regina College in 1911, the subsequent construction of Darke Hall and the establishment of the University of Regina. Long neglected, this significant Collegiate Gothic campus is undergoing a comprehensive five-year rehabilitation that will result in a complete renewal, including its historic interior spaces. This talk will cover all aspects of the project including the work completed to date, and that anticipated over the next three years.

    Donald Luxton is the principal of a leading western Canadian heritage and cultural resource management firm, and over the last thirty years his wide-ranging career has included the development of municipal planning programs, the restoration of numerous heritage buildings and the development of many significant cultural facilities. Donald’s expertise, interest and accomplishments as an author, educator and practitioner have been recognized and acknowledged through numerous awards, including the Heritage Canada Achievement Award in 2003 and a number of literary prizes including a BC Book Prize in 2004.

    He is currently acting as the Heritage Consultant for the College Avenue Renewal.

  • Civic Museum launches new operating model

    Tuesday, July 5, 2016

    After months of community and partner engagement, the Civic Museum of Regina (CMoR) will be adopting a more contemporary model of museum – an approach that will focus on being a ‘story-driven’ museum to maximize sharing of information about its extensive artifact collection.

    CMoR, with the support of the City of Regina, contracted Ken Alecxe, past CEO of SCN Television and Heritage Saskatchewan, to consult with stakeholders on various museum models. The overwhelming result was to develop a Contemporary Eco-museum whereby a museum without walls is created.  Simply put, it is the development of a heritage museum that engages the entire city and creates space for both public viewing and community engagement.  This becomes an opportunity to partner with numerous stakeholders, like-minded organizations, business and the entire community, in sharing our collective history.  This will be achieved through using traditional artifacts and sponsored satellite exhibits in existing spaces to engage a larger audience.  The community becomes the museum – from installations in the City Hall foyer to the new Mosaic Stadium; from shopping malls to seniors’ homes – the Museum will engage citizens where they work, live, shop and socialize.

    Rob Deglau, President of the museum, says “This new model is quite exciting!  With the City of Regina’s first ever cultural plan in place, we feel the museum is well positioned to contribute in a new meaningful way to the citizens of Regina and we have already begun the development of partnerships, exhibits and programming that will begin appearing throughout the city.”
