The Mendel Art Gallery
The Mendel Art Gallery and Civic Conservatory opened its doors in 1964. The Gallery was named in recognition of the vision and contribution of Saskatoon industrialist, art collector, and original benefactor Frederick S. Mendel, who believed that many others would share his commitment to this important cultural resource.
