Wyland - Photos of the Marine Artist and His 100 Whaling Walls

Top Right Solid Corner

Marine artist Wyland is world famous for painting large, outdoor murals of whales and other ocean life. He painted his first 'Whaling Wall' in 1981 at Laguna Beach, California. Wyland set himself a goal of painting 100 Whaling Walls by 2011. He reached his goal in 2008 by creating his 100th Whaling Wall in Chaoyang Park,Beijing, China to celebrate the Green Olympics. The quest took 27 years, in 13 countries and four continents. The final wall in China, #100 'Hands Across the Ocean' consists of 54 panels and is one of the world's longest murals at 2,430 Feet Long x 10 Feet High. Thousands of children helped Wyland over a two week period, and the mural features habitats and wildlife of all 205 Olympic-member countries.

The Wyland Foundation has since 2003 conducted a touring schedule to promote art, science, and conservation in more than 35 states, Mexico, and Canada, reaching more than 50 million people. In 2007, the artist, along with science educators and volunteers, held a national tour for clean water, "From Pike's Peak to the Chesapeake Bay — Every Drop Counts," to raise awareness through art and science about protecting watersheds nationwide.
