Community Art Contest
The Legacy of the Lakes Museum is pleased to announce the 3nd Annual Pledge-a-Paddle Community Art Contest. We invited community members to paint, carve, burn, and sculpt paddles into works of art and displayed at the museum during the 2022 season. Admission to the Paddle Art Gallery to view the paddles is free.* The Pledge-a-Paddle Community Art Contest will return in 2024!
*Regular admission applies to the rest of the museum galleries.
