Starting this fall, thousands of students walking the Arts Building ramp on their way to and from class each day will see a vibrant new work of art above them.

Rise of the Morning Star, a painting by Kevin Pee-ace, is now permanently installed on a wall overlooking the ramp, one of the busiest locations on the University of Saskatchewan campus.

Pee-ace created the painting during Aboriginal Achievement Week in February–March 2017. The artist from the Yellow Quill and Peter Chapman First Nations was invited by the College of Arts & Science to spend the week painting in public in an open area of the Arts Building. Students and visitors passing by were able to observe and chat with Pee-ace about his creative process.

Pee-ace said he hopes the painting will help to inspire students as they work towards their goals in the College of Arts & Science.

The artist spoke about his work for a video shown at a launch event for the painting on Sept. 12. A video timelapse of the painting process was also created.
