Old stories tell of the wondrous things that happen near Whistler. Between the trees, in the shadow of mountains, legends say there’s a hidden valley where stardust falls from the sky, filling all living things with its pure light.
It’s a place that’s filled with unexpected enchantment. There’s a way to get there, but few know how to find it. Those who visit and witness its secrets remember it long after they leave.
Join an evening excursion and follow cryptic radio transmissions and the lingering traces of two long-ago hikers to find the scenic trailhead where the real journey begins… This pathway leads toward a place filled with beauty, and proof that the legends of Whistler are true.
Showtimes nightly, at sundown until October 14th 2018.
Duration: Approximately 1 hour in the forest, 2 hours round trip from Whistler Village

Fear and disease go hand in hand.
News media and technology often spread hysteria and fear around disease. As fear swells, it plays various roles in how a disease is perceived and understood. While inciting fear can may cause precautions, it also divides the healthy from the unhealthy, those who are willing to help from those who are not, and often fact from fiction.
The work in Public Notice deal with disease and illness and its impact historically and racially, look at loss and misunderstanding, and contrast scientific facts to fiction. While fear often trumps empathy and understanding, the works in this exhibition refuse to let fear have the last word.
