Boggy Creek with Joe Fafard

Chronicling our past and giving shape to our cultural identity, sculptor Joe Fafard is a prominent figure in Canadian art. Working at his Saskatchewan farm near Boggy Creek, Fafard creates iconic sculptures. As common-place as cows, dogs, sheep and horses might seem, these domesticated animals speak volumes about our human connection to land. We watch as Joe constructs a massive wolf figure made from logs found on his land. Later we accompany him to the National Gallery of Canada where his achievements are celebrated.
