The University of Alberta Museums is proud to present "Colouring the Past: Art in Archaeology" a lunch-hour lecture given by Heritage Art Series creator, Todd Kristensen in connection with the exhibition Floods, Blood, and Bitumen of the Heritage Art Series. This lecture will introduce the goals of the Heritage Art Series and explain how the knowledge of our past can put Albertans on better footing to make informed decisions about our province's future. It is said that a nation with no knowledge of its history is a tree severed from its roots: the Heritage Art Series blends science, history, and art to strengthen our roots and keep Albertans connected to this place.

About the Speaker:

Todd Kristensen is the creator of the Heritage Art Series and is a current PhD student in the University of Alberta's Department of Anthropology. He is also a Regional Archaeologist with Alberta's Historic Resources Management Branch. Todd worked as an archaeologist from B.C. to Newfoundland and southern Saskatchewan to northern Yukon before finding his deepest passion in Alberta's heritage.
