17 Must-See Pieces of Public Art in Victoria, BC

We like to think of Victoria as an art gallery without walls. Public art helps define a city. It shows you who we are. Buzzing urban spaces, water views and quiet squares make cool backdrops for Victoria’s diverse and inspiring public art, including vivid murals, majestic totem poles and modern sculpture.

We’ve put together an Instagram-worthy sampler tour that can be done on foot or by bike (plus four can’t-miss pieces for your arrival). Follow the route to see some of our favourite public art in the heart of the city. This is just a start. You’ll find many more pieces just by looking around as you explore Victoria and its many neighbourhoods.
