Call for Entry

This is from Jennifer Gould.

Would you please share this information with any people you know who may be interested?  Disability is not limited to physical disability but also includes people in recovery and those with mentail illness.  It would be great if someone you know is able to take advantage of this program.


The Legacy Trust Award Collection (LTAC) is a statewide art competition designed to provide assistance to adult artists with disabilities to facilitate participation in ArtPrize. For more information, visit


Back for its fourth year, the Legacy Trust Award Collection is soliciting artwork from adult artists with disabilities for a mini-competition in advance of ArtPrize 2013, the radically open art competition that will be held September 18-October 26 in downtown Grand Rapids.

Each year, Legacy Trust and sponsors in the business, arts and disability communities ask Michigan artists with disabilities submit their best paintings, sculptures, photographs, drawings, collages and other works of art to a preliminary art competition. The winners, chosen by popular vote and by a panel of celebrity judges, receive a cash prize of $500 and sponsorship in ArtPrize.


 The Legacy Trust Award Collection Artist Registration Form and Poster are available online, at the links below.
 All registration forms must be received by Legacy Trust by Wednesday, May 15, 2013. All artwork must be delivered by mail, UPS, FedEx or in person to Legacy Trust on May 20.
Legacy Trust, 300 Ottawa NW, Suite 600, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 49546.

OUR VISION:  MDRC works to build opportunities for people with disabilities so they may live fully integrated lives within their chosen communities, now and in the future. Full citizenship is the expected role that people with disabilities will play, and their hopes and dreams parallel those of citizens without disabilities.

OUR MISSION:  MDRC is a disability justice movement working
to transform communities.
