The city has a brand new map to guide visitors and locals alike on a walking or driving tour around downtown Williams Lake to visit the city’s murals, sculptures, gardens, and heritage sites.
With the addition of the city’s latest mural unveiled Saturday on the Spirit Square side of the Crosina Realty building, the city now has 17 beautiful murals to visit.
With the exception of the Crosina Realty mural which was not completed by printing time, all of the other murals are indicated on the cultural map.
The new map, which was almost three years in the making by the BIA with help from lakecity artists Dwayne Davis and Dave Abbott, also outlines some of the major cultural events in the city such as Art Walk and the Winter Lights and Santa Claus Parade.
The map is being distributed to businesses and tourism information centres in Williams Lake, 100 Mile House and Quesnel for the public to pick up and enjoy.
The map also includes information about the collaborative Alley Art Mural Mentorship Project, an ongoing, provincial program providing an educational component for budding mural artists.
