Past, Present, Future

Indigenous artist, Kalum Teke Dan has been commissioned to create art for three banners that will adorn Calgary’s municipal building atrium. The pieces, titled PastPresent and Future aim to represent the rich history of the land on which Calgary sits and how all people are working to understand the wrongs of the past and provide a way forward for the future.

The public art budget for this project is $50,000 and includes artist fees, printing and installation. Three banners are expected to be installed in spring/summer of 2021.

About Kalum Teke Dan

“I have been painting for more than 25 years and am mostly self-taught. Much of my work is based on personal reflection and observation surrounding the spirituality of my People and the energy around us. My roots are with the Blood Tribe in southern Alberta, and although I was raised in “the big city,” my family exerted a strong influence on me early in my life, which led me to an appreciation of Indigenous culture, teachings and artistic traditions.”

You can see Kalum’s most recent work at the Calgary Stampede Elbow River Camp, 17th Avenue Framing, the new Calgary Central Library and the John Howard Society.

Artist Statement

These murals will embody the history of the land we currently call home, and continue to build the foundation for our future.
