Gate Posts With No Gate: The Leg Paint Project is a collaboration between poet Peter Waldor, Shanti Arts Publishing, and fourteen visual artists working in various mediums. The project began with Waldor's collection of poems establishing a simple premise: "notes to a painter for a series of paintings on the millipede's legs." After sharing the poems with the artists, leaving them to interpret them as they pleased, over 30 individual artworks were completed. They were then compiled into a book designed to showcase the works alongside the collection of poems that served as inspiration.
