— a story told in art —
Chemainus has been long known for the art, like murals and sculptures, that line the streets and hide on the sides of the buildings. The Chemainus mural project is the world’s leading community-driven art tourism experience.
CHEMAINUS FESTIVAL OF MURALS SOCIETY
The Chemainus Festival of Murals Society was established in 1987 and is a registered, non-profit organization directed by an elected Board of Directors with the purpose of managing and developing the Mural Project.
There are over 60 art installations located all throughout Chemainus. You can find murals on the sides of many of the buildings in town and sculptures scattered throughout the community. Follow the map on muraltown.com to take yourself on a tour of the glorious art around town.
