Long Description:
Cowboys captured the life of the drovers. From glory to eating dust and exhaustion: At the end of the cattle drive they relax overlooking the herd that will soon go to market. Was it worth it, "It's the Cowboy Way!"

All the murals are well done paying tribute to the artist's talent and creativity for any passersby to enjoy.

The murals are numbered and we will showcase
# 16 – Cowboys

Cowboys

3213 30th Avenue

From the 1860's to the 1890's, young men from all over the world came to the valley for the cowboy way of life. It was the era of the cattle ranches. The best riders and ropers were the Okanagan First Nation Cowboys.

From the Cowboys

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
