Public Art Wrapping Project – Hali Heavy Shield
Meet FryBread Man!
If you are downtown, look for the electrical box on the corner of 5th Street and 1st Avenue (north-west corner of Galt Gardens) for the latest addition to the Electrical Box Wrapping Pilot.
FryBread Man was created by Hali Heavy Shield. The artist is a member of the Blood Tribe (Kainai Nation). In their proposal, Heavy Shield’s explains, “I am familiar with the history and contemporary meaning of Galt Gardens as a social and cultural hub of Lethbridge and Indigenous community. As an educator and emerging artist, my philosophy is to create visual art as a way of storytelling that both inspires and provides hope to the viewer.”
The vinyl wrap was printed and installed by Warwick Printing Co.

Watch for more electrical boxes to be wrapped in Galt Gardens during calm (no wind) days.
