Whistler's Autumn ArtWalk Begins

Art Walk I love art

Are you ready to see some great art? We'll you better get your walking shoes on because the Whistler ArtWalk is back and better than ever! This September 1st to November 30th, Arts Whistler is hosting 3 full months of local artwork for visitors to peruse throughout the village, absolutely free of charge!

ArtWalk this year boasts over 30 unique art galleries, from grand hotels to funky cafes and boutiques, scattered all over Whistler. And there's plenty of diversity for the whole family to enjoy, from graffiti to scenic landscapes this ArtWalk has it all!

Free Art?!

Is just looking at art is too boring for you? Well, how about a scavenger hunt to liven up the mood! If you can track down enough stickers from the venues to spell out the word "ArtWalk" you have a chance to win original art. All you have to do is hand in your completed passport to the Maury Young Arts Centre and cross your fingers.

Sold!

And as an added bonus you take a piece of Whistler home with you because all the artwork will be on sale! This is an amazing opportunity to pick up an original piece by one of Whistler's talented local artists. If you're seriously interested about buying something you can contact Arts Whistler (604-935-8410) to take it home or visit the Maury Young Arts Centre at 4335 Blackcomb Way.

Whistler Alternative

When visiting Whistler, consider staying at Pemberton Valley Lodge. We offer several advantages over Whistler hotels…

 1  Only 20 minutes

You can get to the Village faster from our Lodge than you can from some parts of Whistler Resort.

 2  Save money

Whistler hotels typically charge for parking. We don't. And you get bigger rooms for your dollar.

 3  Ski shuttle

Our complimentary shuttle bus runs daily from the Lodge to and from Whistler Blackcomb.
