Back To Things To Do

Initiated by local artist Stefan Bell, in the late 1980s, was the idea to express different facets of life and history in the Creston Valley with murals on various local businesses. In the middle of downtown Creston you can discover a wider expression of the Creston Valley.

  1. Discover the four seasons of the Creston Valley on the west wall of the McDowell Department Store, corner of 11th Avenue North and Canyon Street. This was the start of the mural project, painted by Stefan Bell in 1987. Click here!
  2. On the other side of the street, on the east wall of Pharmasave, the natural extravaganza of the Creston Wildlife Management Area is displayed. Painted by Linda Dawn Jensen in 1989, this mural encourages visitors to explore the largest wildlife reserve in BC. Click here!
  3. See the view from Goat Mountain to the north of Creston looking over Erickson's fruit orchards on the west wall of the School Board Office, corner of 16th Avenue North and Canyon Street, painted by Roger Kamp in 1988. Click here!
  4. Another view of the Creston Valley painted by Roger Kamp in 1991, this time from the top of Thompson Mountain, can be seen on the west wall of Sunset Seeds at 1201 Cook Street. Click here!
  5. A piece of Creston's logging history is appropriately found on the east wall of the Home Building Center at 116 Northwest Boulevard, painted my local artist Darlene MacDonald in 1988. Click here!
  6. More murals can be found on the retaining walls of the parking lot just north of Sunset Seeds on Cook Street. The Swan Valley Mural Society held a competition for artists, offering the retaining walls as their canvas. The artistic expression of many students and local and provincial artists can be found here.
