This project is part of the Stony Plain Public Art Program. This program is funded by a percent for art Stony-Plain-archivalpolicy which is designed to enhance the visibility of public art works throughout the community. The selected work will be permanently installed in the downtown core. (Note: The Town reserves the right to move or de-accession the artwork if necessary and will make every effort to notify the artist if applicable.)

Site Background
The corner lot of Main Street (50th Avenue) and 52nd Avenue was originally the site of a two-storey implement agency owned by George Imeson, which began business in approximately 1906. The agency was one of the first businesses to begin operation in the community and carried farm machinery, equipment, buggies and wagons. During this time the top floor of the building was used as the buggy/wagon display area. The implement business was later operated by Ducholke and Wudel. At some point in the original building’s history the top floor was used as a dance hall. The lot beside this building was empty for many years and served as a ‘parking lot’ for horses and wagons, and occasionally fairs were held there.

A new building was constructed on the two lots in 1959 and was known as the ‘Balkan Building’, named after the owner/contractor. It housed Provincial offices and included a courthouse and treasury branch. The building has had a number of owners and undergone several renovations throughout the years. Various businesses have been located in the building, including the Credit Union (1990-2003) and currently Drayden Insurance. The exterior alcove, in which the Work will be installed, was an entrance way when the building held the courthouse.
