History / Biographical
Donald W. Buchanan was born in 1908 in Lethbridge, Alberta. He was the son of Senator William Ashbury Buchanan, the publisher of the Lethbridge Herald. He studied Modern History at the University of Toronto and Oxford University. In 1934, he received a fellowship from the Carnegie Corporation to train in museum administration. Following his research fellowship, Buchanan founded the National Film Society of Canada, as well as he worked for the Canadian Radio Commission (now the CBC). Buchanan was always involved in the arts and he was a firm believer in making the arts accessible to the public. In 1963, Donald Buchanan, and his brother Hugh, offered many fine works of art to the City of Lethbridge. This became the first significant public art collection ever to exist in Lethbridge. He believed that art was meant to be shared and enjoyed by all. After leaving the Canadian Radio Commission, Buchanan worked for the National Film Board, where he established the stills division; from 1947 until 1960 he was employed by the National Gallery of Canada, serving as director of the Industrial Design Division (1947-1953). His work with the National Industrial Design Committee and the curated the revolutionary exhibition “Design for Use in Canadian Products” (1946) which changed the standards of Canadian art. Donald W. Buchanan served as the Associate Director of the National Gallery of Canada, and took a leave of absence to explore his own artistic endeavors of photography while travelling throughout Europe. Buchanan returned to the Gallery in 1963 as a member of its Board of Trustees, and he became the Director of the International Fine Arts Exhibition at Expo ’67 in Montreal. In the last few years of his life, his friends recall him being busier than ever, organizing the exhibition. He never was able to see the fruits of his labor, however, because of his sudden death in 1966 after being struck by a car in Ottawa. His legacy centered on the accessibility of art to the public and his impact on the art community in Lethbridge.

History / Biographical
Michael Pisko was an artist and a local businessman. Born in Lethbridge in 1913, Pisko took up art at a young age. He studied industrial electricity at the Institute of Technology and Art in Calgary. He moved back to Lethbridge where he began working in the local sign business after he graduated during the Great Depression. Throughout his time at the sign company, he sketched and continued his artistic passion. He went on to study with artists such as A.Y. Jackson, Marion Nicoll and H. G. Glyde, attending the University of Alberta and the Banff School of Fine Arts. Southern Alberta proved to be an endless source of inspiration for Pisko’s artwork, where he created many oil paintings of the local landscape. The Galt Museum & Archives holds many of Pisko’s paintings in the Collections Department. Eventually taking over the City Sign Company, Pisko used his artistic skills to show his appreciation and talents to the Lethbridge business community. Pisko won many local art contests and was able to design signs for the Lethbridge Senior Centre, to which he was an active member, as well as the crest for Catholic Central High School, and many others. He was an active and founding member of the Lethbridge Sketch Club, and was a lifetime member of the Alberta Society of Artists. After his passing in 1999, the Michael Pisko Memorial Award at the University of Lethbridge was established to continue Pisko’s legacy of promoting beauty and passion.

History / Biographical
CFAC was a private Canadian television station in Lethbridge. It was originally associated with CBC Television. On September 1, 1975 CFAC TV broke away from the CBC and became an independent station. In 1976, CFAC changed to the label CFAC-TV-7. The station was branded to match its sister station in Calgary, and it adopted the nickname “2 & 7 Lethbridge Television”. Due to increased viewership, in 1988 the station was able to begin carrying some of Global TV’s entertainment programs. In 1990, the station was sold to Western International Communications where CFAC was changed to CISA-TV label. The current association for the station is with Global and the station is commonly known as Global Lethbridge. Local programming was consistently an important part of CFAC TV. It broadcasted successful shows such as “Kids Belong Together” and “Key to Literacy” where both shows won the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Gold Ribbon Award for community involvement.
