I drove into the pitch-black town of Bruno at the end of a long venture far into the eastern Saskatchewan prairie skyline. It was the middle of the night and my GPS had long lost its signal. The only light came from a few streetlights and a couple of glowing house windows. Something about arriving to a place that you have never been before requires a certain faith, a belief that everything will just come together. I hadn’t been warned about the lack of telephone service and non-existent 3G signal but the deficit wasn’t much cause for concern. Intuition told me the prairie town would be small enough to drive down every street in less than thirty minutes. In five I found what I was looking for. There it stood, the town bank, a 2400 square foot heritage building built in 1917, formerly the Dominion Bank and Conexus Insurance, now home to “The Arts Building” also known as Bruno Arts Bank.
