Arts and Culture Facilities

Arts & Culture Facilities

Located along the Ambleside waterfront, West Vancouver's art facilities are home to a variety of exhibitions and programs. 

Music Box

Located on the beach in Ambleside, the Music Box provides a creative environment for drawing, painting, multimedia programs, open studio sessions, and workshops for adults of varying levels.

Ferry Building Gallery

Situated at Ambleside Landing in one of West Vancouver’s original buildings, this newly restored public community art gallery serves as a hub for arts and culture.

Silk Purse Studio & Gallery

This waterfront building is home to the West Vancouver Community Arts Council (WVCAC) and the Silk Purse Studio & Gallery.

Art Museum

The West Vancouver Art Museum fosters awareness and understanding of art, architecture, cultural history and design through its collection, publications, dynamic exhibitions, and educational programs.

Arts Planning: Visioning

The District's three dedicated arts facilities (Art Museum, Music Box, and Silk Purse), originally built as single-family cottages, are in poor condition and are at the end of life. West Vancouver's arts and culture community is in need of adequate space to continue carrying out their activities.

Following Council direction, the District is in the process of planning an accessible, purpose-built arts facility as a replacement for these three facilities. The new facility will meet the current and future demand for arts and culture for years to come. Learn more about the planning process at the link below.
