There's a coveted Robert Wyland 21-m/69-ft Whale Wall uptown, and a slew of flamboyant and whimsical murals by local artist Elizabeth Hollick on bus shelters, electrical boxes, and even washrooms. The murals have seen a marked reduction in graffiti. As well, statues and carvings dot the 2-km/1.2-mi seashore promenade.

Established in 1966, this 186 sq m (2,000 sq ft) gallery sits quietly on 1.2 ha (3 ac) of beautiful gardens.

Arnold Mikelson was born in 1922 & passed away in 1984, but his magnificent works of art live on. Today the gallery offers several mediums of original art for sale - paintings, pottery, soapstone carvings, glass - along with an extensive collection of Arnold Mikelson wood sculptures. The gallery is host to 2 yearly shows, The Festival of Arts in July and Art for Christmas.
