Deep Bay
Residency program

The Deep Bay Cabin

The Deep Bay Cabin at Riding Mountain National Park was renovated by Parks Canada in 2006 to become the home of the Manitoba Arts Council’s Deep Bay Artists’ Residency program. Here, in the beautiful natural setting of the park, artists reflect, experiment, and create new art.

Open House at the Deep Bay Cabin

Don Huisman and the Manitoba Arts Council host an Open House at the cabin on May 25 from 1-3pm. Discover all about the cabin’s history and the new works of art being created. To view poster click here.
