Community Supported Art (CSArt) and community supported agriculture (CSA) are models of production that connect artists and growers directly to collectors and consumers.
There are two options for CSArt:
--Patron Level // $350 for 10 editioned works of art (sale price $320)
--Collector Level // $1,000 for 5 original works of art (sale price $910)
This event marks the beginning of the CSA and CSArt seasons. Over the next few months, collectors and patrons who purchase CSArt shares will have multiple opportunities to meet participating artists and network with other member shareholders at a handful of special events before receiving their artwork at the final harvest or pick-up event in June.
