Wyland Galleries Wyland Galleries

Over 30 years ago, marine life artist Wyland exploded on the scene with his rich, majestic murals of marine life. The timing couldn't have been better - the environmental movement was in full swing and ocean-themed art was in high demand. Today, the art is as vibrant as ever and the message of showcasing the beauty of nature is even stronger. But Wyland's mission has expanded in entirely new ways. With new art, a new emphasis on families and education, and a broader view of our relationship to the beauty of our entire blue planet - from our oceans, lakes, and rivers, to our streams and wetlands.
