In Whistler

The Whistler Art Walking Tour is a great way to experience local galleries and public art pieces. Self-guided brochures are available at MY (Millennium) Place or online at www.whistlerartscouncil.com. Also, many local cafés and restaurants, bars and retail outlets offer up their walls as display spaces for local painters and photographers.
