A bronze statue by Chuck Buchanan stands in front of the building. Inside is a large relief sculpture by Lilias Farley, a local art teacher and nationally known sculptor. Her "History of the Yukon" (1955), over the main doors, was the first public art commissioned in the territory. A traditional button blanket "Kwanlin Dün (River People)," designed by Eddy Shorty hangs in the foyer. A drum by Joe Migwans features a portrait of Elijah Smith, drawn by Clifton Fred, in memory of the renowned First Nation Elder.
