Mural is located in the lobby at the Galiano Inn. So much detail repressing ocean life and island history. Fascinating to look at. We spent at least 15 minutes looking at all the detail. Amazing.

Worth a quick visit in! I couldn’t tell if we were welcomed in there or not (it’s in a lobby and the guy didn’t seem thrilled) but we loved taking 10 minutes to enjoy this amazing piece of art!!

One of the panel was done by Robert Bateman (it features a raven). There's also a documentary on YouTube titled "how 190 paintings came together to create the stunning Kunamokst mural".

We were told to check out the mural, in the lobby of Galiano Inn, 190 artists were given guidelines and told to paint a 9x9 picture of what the Westcoast means to them. Each individual painting is amazing but the result of them all together...More

This thing is so cool that it is worth your 5 minutes to stare at it. If you are staying at the Galiano Inn then definitely check it out while you are at the front desk checking in or out.
