Ketchikan is home to a large and diverse population of artists who find inspiration in the scenic beauty, flora and fauna and the historic and cultural attributes of our town. More than 350 of our local residents are registered artists and their work can be seen everywhere from on piling caps around the promenade to in the shops and galleries in town.
