Public Art in Oak Bay is Alive and Well and Happening!
About Oak Bay
The municipality of Oak Bay, part of Greater Victoria, is located on the south eastern tip of Vancouver Island. Surrounded by beaches and parkland, its scenery includes splendid views across the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Salish Sea. Oak Bay is legendary for its fine domestic architecture, its picturesque gardens and for its "old world" atmosphere. This geologically fascinating area is also home to the unique and rare Garry Oak Meadow ecosystem. Our 18,000 residents have a deep attachment to our natural and built environment. We have a majority of the region's art galleries and many resident artists and arts enthusiasts. Now in its fifth year of development, the Oak Bay Public Art Strategy program, ArtsAlive Oak Bay, with its Arts Laureate position, is an expression of our municipality's support for a flourishing arts environment for the economic, social and personal benefit of our entire community.
