Many of the buildings in downtown Dawson Creek are part of a large mural project that took place over several years beginning in 2000.

The City of Dawson Creek, the South Peace Art Society and the Dawson Creek Art Gallery got together and sponsored talented local artists to produce a series of murals that tell the colorful stories of:

·   The construction of the Alaska Highway and its impact on the people living here. 

·   The agricultural way of life and the farmers who developed this region.

·   The life and times and history of the community and the people who live here.

The mission of the project is city beatification and to offer a positive experience for visitors to the community.

Murals can be found in back alleys downtown and on the sides of some prominent buildings.
