URegina restores iconic frog sculpture, searches for student creators to hear their experiences

As the University of Regina restores an iconic frog sculpture located on its Avenue campus, the institution is searching for the 10 students who helped to create it in 1971 under the guidance of the late sculptor Joe Fafard. The frog is one of several of Fafard’s funk sculpture style creations that were created with support from students and placed on campus, and is the only one that is still standing. While the frog has been credited to Fafard, 10 student artists contributed to the collaborative project. URegina will be installing a plaque with information about the frog’s history and restoration and is hoping to find the students that helped create the frog to hear about their experiences.
