Mahihkan

In early May 2016 we were thrilled to install Mahihkan, the bronze wolf sculpture by Joe Fafard for which we have been fundraising since 2011. Mahihkan is now part of the Permanent Collection of the Mann Art Gallery. Thank you to hundreds of volunteers and donors who have helped us acquire this wonderful work of public art!
