People in the art world often speak of the legacy of Jean Boggs. And walking through some of the most influential art establishments here and in the U.S., you can actually see that legacy.
Innovator, outdoorsman, teacher, physicist. Born on June 5, 1948, in Maple Creek, Sask., died on April 9, 2014, in Regina, of lymphoma, aged 65.One of the last things Lynn did was chair a meeting of the Fort Qu'Appelle Historical Society via video conference from his hospital room. The group runs a museum, and Lynn earnestly believed that a talking Archibald McDonald mannequin was needed. Archibald would welcome visitors to the original trading-post building and regale them with stories of his days as chief factor for the Hudson's Bay Company. Lynn's motion was denied, but I know many of us still dream of animatronics in the small-town museum, keeping alive his love of technology, history and being just a little outrageous.
