 Sculpture on the West Side of the Harry Hayes building

Rock Carving by Mr. Joe Chomistek . The sculpture is located on the West Lawn of the Harry Hayes building.

I took a close up photo of the plaque, so here to the best of my ability to read the photo is what it says:

Rock carvings by Mr. Joe Chomistek of Scandia, Alberta.

Donated to the Government of Canada.

Permanent display funded by Agriculture Canada, PFRA and unveiled by the honourable Harvie Andre M.P. on August 25, 1986.  

The remainder of the plaque is the same information written in French.
