The beautifully painted murals located around the Town of Hudson Bay were painted by local artists with sponsorship from the Millennium Bureau of Canada, Weyerhaeuser, and the Town of Hudson Bay.

The striking mural depicting a Northwest Mounted Police officer of the early 1900’s and a modern day Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer was painted by Deb Kankkunnen, Mary Ann Moe, Angela Sandomirsky and Laurie Nielsen.

A 13 x 33 foot mural on the brick wall represents a piece of hide tied by strips of leather to poplar poles on which is painted a picture of Henry Kelsey (who came up the Etomami River looking for beaver fur) trading with First Nations people. The mural was painted by Jacki Coleman & Del Brann and is located on the Town Administration building.
