ParkArt is an exhibition of art, craft and media inspired by Canada’s national parks and national historic sites. From the earliest days of human history, artists have explored the deep connections between people and land, history and identity. And, with its diversity of landscapes and cultures, Canada has provided a muse unlike any other.

Welcome to this celebration of art, nature, history and community. From Banff National Park and the Canadian Rockies to Gwaii Hanaas and Kluane National Park and Reserve, to the remote Torngat Mountains, ParkArt presents work from Canadian and international artists whose creativity sparks a dialogue with our wild and historic places.

Visit the historic pool deck at the Cave and Basin all summer long to enjoy this special seasonal exhibit.
