Art is a very important part of the culture in Langley & Fort Langley; it helps bring meaning to the community and brings our stories to life. Art can even reflect the changes of time, and how the world around the artist has transformed. The city of Langley actively supports new artists in an effort to preserve our history and bring our community to life. If you’re looking to find some meaning through art, to learn a little history, or just get a good Instagram selfie, check out these quintessential art venues in Langley!
The Langley Mural Walk 🚶♂️🌳👪
One of the many ways Fort Langley art is developing is through murals. Over time, Langley wants to increase the number of murals so that art can be seen throughout the entire city. There are murals celebrating the beautiful parks of Langley, Canada’s 150th birthday, as well as the people of Langley. These murals represent an important part of Langley’s growth and culture. On the Langley Mural Walk, you can visit over 15 different murals while also bringing the family to Douglas Park for some fresh air and fun activities. The Downtown Langley Business Association also features pictures of people that participate in the mural walk. You have a chance to be featured if you take a picture of yourself (or your family) with the art murals. Check out this attraction page for a detailed map of the murals and check out DLBA’s Facebook page for more information on being featured!
Langley Art Exhibitions 🖼️😃🖌️
The Langley Arts Council was formed in 1969 with a mission to create more art and culture in the city of Langley. Becoming a charity in 1996, the arts council was able to contribute towards initiatives that would not only preserve the art that exists in Langley but create more through generous donations. By participating and highlighting the artists of Langley, many art events are able to happen in the Langley area. If you want to see some of these art events in Langley, visit the art council’s exhibition website!
