Open Call for Art Proposals

Open Call for Art Proposals

As part of making Legacy Paddlesports the sweetest place to work on the planet, we plan to enrich our offices and factory inside and out with Art that evokes our love of  Water, Rivers, Kayaking and of course, Liquidlogic Kayaks and Native Watercraft. We want to surround ourselves with the work of others who draw on the paddling environment as a key source of inspiration.  We hope to create a workspace that will keep us fired up to imagine, design, and build the world’s greatest boats.  Hence: this Art Proposal.
We have built some fun and playful offices; our staff has optimized every part of our production floor, but our walls, though colorful, are bare.  Our front garden and grounds around the factory have begun to grow many natural wonders, but we still crave something distinctive. Like: your work.
We aspire to build the world’s premiere collection of paddling-based artwork and we want to offer you the opportunity to be a part of it. To start our collection, we hope to commission up to 20 separate pieces of art.

Our Committee will consider works:
  • in any medium
  • in any style
  • with content connected directly to paddling or evocative of its elements
  • in any scale.... do note that we have a large space and will certainly welcome large scale proposals

Complete applications must include the following information:
  • Contact Information
  • Work Samples in the form of jpgs, url, snail mail, or bring it here to the factory.
  • JPGs representing an existing work or works that you would like us to consider
  • Resume or Bio

Deadline for Submissions: May 1st.
Final Projects Deadline: July 15th;

Artists will be compensated with one Native Watercraft or Liquidlogic Kayak (not including the Pedal Drive boats).  The Legacy Paddlesports Gallery Committee may consider other compensation at their discretion.
