For Artists / Opportunities

Lettuce, Tacoma / Live Art Showcase / Call for Artists



If you do not live in Tacoma, no worries, we have a spot to showcase one artist that lives outside of Tacoma for each of the events.

Our mission is to build a thriving art community through showcasing live art that empowers, inspires, and educates while promoting creative industries.

Lettuce is a supportive and respectful environment where we promote learning, growing, and educating.

At the event, 3-4 artists will have one 2 hour session to create a piece of art. While the artist is exploring their creativity, audience members will purchase raffle tickets that they will then place in the mason jars of the piece they wish to win.

Artists are also able to have a small table where they can sell their previously made art pieces. As long as it is being looked after by some friendly folk while they are in the midst of a masterpiece.

We are looking for various mediums of art to showcase! If it can be done in front of an audience in two hours, let’s try it out!

In exchange, Lettuce will give the artist a $30 gift card to Artist and Craftsman, $50 check, 2 drink tickets, and 3 free tickets for your friends, and 50% of the proceeds from the raffle sale will go to the artists. Lastly, Lettuce will promote you work on the website, Facebook, and Instagram.
