b'Creating a Living Legacy:Ukrainian Voice Print MosaicThousands of printing blocks6,000 to be preciseused in the newspaper Ukraiinskyi Holos (Ukrainian Voice),Promin, and other Ukrainian Canadian publications were slated for the dumpster when Winnipeg-based Trident Press closed its doors in 2018.Fortunately, Drs. Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn and Roman Yereniuk happened upon the treasure trove and, with the help of fellow artists Theo Harasymiw and Sylvie Ellis, and archivist Eric Fincham, they worked with community volunteers to rescue the invaluable historical collection.4000 of those blocks, the oldest dating back to 1919, have now been cleaned, researched, catalogued, and categorized. 60% of them have been identified by volunteers and many casual visitors to the project site located above the Edmonton Downtown Farmers Market.It is heartwarming when people come in to see the blocks and discover images of their family members, or in some cases their familial villages in Ukraine, commented Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn. Visitors enjoy discovering their roots. The project has also engaged two Fine Arts and two Library Sciences students from the Universityof Alberta who have done their practicum with the blocks. The result is an interactive public art project that will contribute to the great Ukrainian Canadian story. The blocks will be mounted to create a mosaic comprised of 10 panels, each 4x 8 in size.A digital component will enable viewers to scan any block to learn more about the image while also providing the opportunity to submit additional information on any particular block.20'
