Luggage Artists?

Seeking local artists to paint (or collage) their own nature-themed designs on world-class Monos luggage! Luggage will be auctioned off to raise funds for Come Alive Outside’s outdoor gear library.

Artists are given the option to paint a large, medium, or carry-on sized luggage (as available). There are different colors for the luggage.

The artist will select the luggage that “speaks to them” when they pick it up in person.


Can be any age
Can be amateurs, professionals or in between
Choose their own medium
Artists of all ages encouraged to participate
Artist is responsible for supplies and choosing their medium
All completed pieces must be returned by October 6
Artist can select a piece of luggage (suitcase, backpack or duffel) for themselves as a thank you for their work.
Theme: Nature/Outdoors
Pickup for luggage is in downtown Rutland, VT. Unfortunately, because it costs between $20-$50 to mail the bags, we cannot cover the cost to mail the bag to artists and then pay for it to be mailed back. Artists should email [email protected] to determine a time to pick up the luggage.
The auction will run October 14-27.
