The Banff School of Fine Arts Caravan toured throughout Western Canada from 1969 to 1971. In addition to showcasing paintings, ceramics, and weaving produced by students and faculty, the exhibit included film and photographs depicting work and life on Banff Centre campus.

The project was a collaborative partnership between Banff Centre and the Ace and Glenbow Foundations of Calgary. Ilda Lubane and Ken Faris designed the exterior, and Lazlo Funtek designed and produced the interior.

The tour officially opened in Banff on June 21, 1969, giving locals a chance to view the exhibit before its departure. By the end of May 1971, the Caravan had travelled 13,441 km and was seen by 324,826 visitors in 138 communities throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.
