I'm always excited to see these murals painted by Wyland! This was easy to find as we were exploring downtown Anchorage.

I was surprised to see this because we have one similar on the exterior walls of a marina located near Niceville and Destin Florida. Amazing and beautiful artwork out in the open for all to enjoy.

I was visiting Humpry' brewery when I passed this large mural. It was beautiful. No chipping and easily visible from the sidewalk/street.

I have been a fan of Wyland since I was stationed in Hawaii many years ago. To actually get to see one of his incredible paintings of such scale and grandeur is a MUST!!!

Was really just strolling through town looking at the sights and some souvenir shopping, when we noticed this beautiful mural on the side of the JCP building. It's a great piece of art.

I might have missed this if our trolley driver/guide hadn't pointed it out. It is pretty cool and it's free to look at!

Very large mural and you can't miss it. Very well done and s nice depiction of the gentle giants of the see. One of the many pleasant sights in downtown Anchorage. Well done.

We passed by this wall, and I didn't really know what it was. This is a cool looking mural that is in the city!

This wall is right in the middle of downtown Anchorage. It shows all of the types of whales, in a colorful manner.
