I always enjoy viewing this artist’s work!! He really captures sea life in a fantastic way. Building is easy to find, located where you can really enjoy if from your car. It is just a really neat part of his wonderful wall art!!

This mural is right next to a parking area and only a couple blocks from the visitors center. A nice piece of art work.

Not quite sure it’s as impressive as the one just in from the harbour side (near Pike’s Market) in Seattle, but a worthy effort nonetheless.

It’s a mural of whales painted on the side of a building downtown by the mall. While it’s pretty, do not go out of the way to see this.

It's a wall with a mural on it in a parking lot. The mural is beautiful and well-done, and worth a look at least, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see this. It was, however, the only whales my husband and I were able to see on our trip to AK so that was nice, and as an artist myself I appreciate the large art piece, and it's free to view so that helps.

What a great way to cover a large building wall – an art mural of life-size whales, seals and marine life. We did a “double take” when we first came across it.

The "Whaling Wall" is wonderful and very impressive. There are other murals all over the downtown area in Anchorage, but this is the largest. It is located on the J.C. Penny building and is difficult to take a photo because of all the poles, cars, electric lines, and such. We drove around looking for it and "poof", there it was. We had to back up, find a parking space, and snap a picture. Pretty neat thing to see. No cost and only takes a couple of minutes.

Largest painted building mural in Anchorage. Painted by prolific artist Robert Wyland, who has work all over the world. Have seen his work in Hawaii on Kauai as well.
