Seward’s love of art is written on the walls! Officially designated ‘Mural Capital of Alaska’ in 2008, Seward has over 30 vibrant paintings throughout town. Each mural depicts unique historical characters, local events, and natural landscapes. Spend the afternoon walking through town and spotting your favorite murals. Can you find the whales swimming downtown, or the puffins hanging out in the harbor?
The Mural Society created a handy digital map showing the locations of each of the murals, with more murals being added often! The society has been painting the town since the first group of volunteers picked up their brushes in 1999. The group has grown over the years and continues to celebrate the beauty and spirit of Alaska through large and public artworks.
