drove by it, saw it from the road. Big O Mural, but nothing special. Not technically an 'attraction' but OK.

This is a very large and very well done painting on the side of the convention center building. It is so large that one might miss it. Beautiful

This is mural of whales and fish on the outside wall of the convention center. Why or why would it be listed as an attraction. It is something to look at for about 2 minutes while there. South Padre Island has so little to do other than water activities it is desparate enough to include this as an activity. Shameful.

It's the thing to do when in SPI so we made sure and visited the wall and took some pics! It's a nice brightly colorful wall, great for pics!

Definitely worth checking out. We got some great pictures and it's a good way to pass some time. We found parking with no problem.

I love wylands works. This is a beautiful mural of his work. Well worth seeing. It is on two sides of a building and is beautiful.

Not really sure what the hype is all about..but its just a wall with paintings of whales and orcas in it. We accidentally came across it..Slowed the car down for a bit and move on to the next destination. Honestly not much to it.

...with orcas? Not sure why they are on the wall. The artwork is nice, though. We just drove up to it, drove by slow, and kept on moving.
