Did you know the buildings down Whyte Avenue play home to over 60 different outdoor wall murals? Some of them are up front and center, while others require more of a hunt to discover and enjoy. Wander along 82 Avenue, up side streets and down the back lanes to find some of the amazing street work Edmonton has to offer – they are all here on the new District Whyte Murals Map!
The murals in Old Strathcona have grown in abundance over the years, thanks to the Old Strathcona Business Association commissioning and sponsoring a number of artists and festivals to add art throughout District Whyte. With more and more murals popping up each year, they have decided to create a handy District Whyte Murals Map that will be regularly updated to guide visitors to new art and artists throughout the area.
We just love the quirky illustrated style of the map! Head to the Old Strathcona Business Association website to see the most up-to-date version and images of some of the amazing murals in the area.
Print out your own pdf postcard version of the map, and plan a self-guided walk with your family to discover these many works of art! Don’t forget to share your favourites via social media by tagging @OldStrathcona in your posts.
