Mixing Stars and Sand: The Art & Legacy of Sarain Stump is a multi-faceted project that makes a major contribution to the art history of the Canadian prairies. It focuses on the art and legacy of Sarain Stump (1945 – 1974), Italian-born Plains Cree autodidact and polymath artist, writer, musician, actor and educator. He was hugely influential in Saskatchewan and internationally, particularly from 1970 to 1974, but has been largely overlooked by the mainstream art world.
