"Hope, the Wishing Whale" is a beautiful twelve-foot-long bronze sculpture created by local Whidbey Island artist Georgia Gerber. Hope was installed in Langley Whale Bell Park at First and Anthes on June 17, 2020. Like one of Georgia's most well-known sculptures, Rachel the Pig at the Pike Place Market, Hope is a giant "piggy" bank.
Money deposited in Hope will be used to make improvements to Whale Bell Park and Seawall Park. The Langley Arts Fund conceived the idea, provided the fundraising, and managed the placement of the sculpture.
