Chili Thom Experience

Celebrate the life and art of one of Whistler's most beloved artists during The Chili Thom Experience. For three weeks in June, the magic and spirit of Chili Thom will be celebrated throughout Whistler's vibrant art community. Immerse yourself in the artwork of a true Whistler pioneer from June 2 to 26.

Donate to the Chili Thom Experience

All benefits raised will go to helping build an endowment fund for young Sea to Sky artists and raise funds to host the June 2-26 free exhibitions celebrating the magical tapestry of Chili Thom’s tenure on earth. Please consider making a charitable donation today.


The art community invites you to share your favourite Chili moment by using the hashtag #MeAndMyChili. Capture Chili's spirit by taking a photo with your favourite Chili art piece or finding yourself in a "Chili-esque" environment. All the images using the hashtag will be collected and appear as a slideshow at receptions and other events honouring Chili.
