“SPI art”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The famous artist Wyland painted marine murals on three exterior walls of the Convention Center, and they can be easily seen and photographed just by driving up to the center and parking right by the walls. The murals were paid for by groups, not by taxes, and they are colorful and fun.

“Wyland's Wall”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Our son did a report on Wyland and it was more interesting to learn about him then actually see his art in person. It is just a wall but we had fun taking pics with the images! And I am biased....as an artist I understand how difficult it can be to create on a large scale. Amazingly beautiful....

“Nice art, but it is a wall.”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

It is a nice drive by, our kids (ages 5 and 7) were less than thrilled. You can see this if you do the Nature Trail or Birding Center along with it.

“nice art”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Nice art which is perfectly aligned for great sunset photography. We have done a couple evening photo-shoots here and had great results. Don't forget to try some bracketing ;)
