Rocky Mountaineer 25th Anniversary

Lattimer Gallery has been selected to provide a variety of corporate gifts for Vancouver's Rocky Mountaineer. Rocky Mountaineer, Canada's premiere train tour operator, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2015 and decided that Northwest Coast Native artwork would be the perfect way to acknowledge staff contributions, and to celebrate this milestone. One of the works that Rocky Mountaineer commissioned through Lattimer Gallery was a striking double-sided Red Cedar paddle carved by Kwakwaka'wakw artist Ross Henderson. Complete with Rocky Mountaineer's logo, this exquisite paddle depicts Eagle and Bear:

In addition to this incredible paddle, we also facilitated the completion of 60 custom steam-bent Red Cedar boxes by Metis/Cree artist, James Michels. Depicting both Frontal Bear and Split Eagle designs in traditional red and black, each bentwood box also sported Rock Mountaineer's logo on the lid. Lattimer Gallery frequently completes custom corporate orders such as this:

Rocky Mountaineer has been awarded the "World's Leading Travel Experience by Train" at the World Travel Awards seven times for its Gold Leaf service, has been listed among the "World's Top 25 Trains" since 2005 by The Society of International Railway Travelers, and was recognized by National Geographic Magazine as one of the "World’s Best Journeys" in 2007.
