Our Public Art Collection enriches the quality of life for both residents and visitors alike through the display of art in public places, and by preserving and collecting artworks that are significant to our local cultural heritage.
The first work of art to enter the District of Sechelt’s collection was a painting titled Sechelt Waterfront, 1902 by Henry J. DeForest. When the Village of Sechelt opened its first municipal hall in 1956, Geoffrey Whitaker presented the DeForest painting as a gift to the newly incorporated village.
More recently, the District of Sechelt began commissioning works of art by local artists for inclusion into the collection. We now have 12 works displayed in Municipal Hall, and another 3 artworks installed in the Sculpture Garden. You can also find public artworks throughout our community in the form of murals, carvings, and decorative BC Hydro boxes.
