Community Supported Art (CSA)

HP-post-CSA2014

 

Our “Community Supported Art” (CSA) program that creates a new marketplace for local artists. Much like Food-based CSA’s from which the moniker comes, “Community Supported Art” offers an opportunity for a group of people to buy a “share” from a group of different artists.
Culminating every December.


Our local CSA program is modeled on Community Supported Art project created by Springboard for the Arts and mnartists.org in Minnesota.

How It Works

Selected artists create “shares” for the program. Each artist will create individual pieces. In return the artists will be provided with a stipend to cover their time and production of the work. Shareholders may choose to keep the works for themselves, or give them as holiday gifts to special friends and clients.

Those interested in becoming shareholders purchase a share and receive a “farm box” of locally produced artwork and an invitation to the Meet the CSA Artists event.
