CSAs to Offer Boxes of Homegrown Art

vegetablesNow that Community Supported Agriculture groups (locally-based models of agriculture and food distribution which began popping up in the 1980s) are catching on across the country, local arts organizations are starting to use the same model (and the same initials).

A Community Supported Art program was recently launched in San Antonio and they just announced the nine artists who will create projects to be handed out this fall to those who pay the $350 per share. Now, Houston’s Fresh Arts is starting up a CSA and have sent out a call for artists. They will select nine artists to make art projects for 50 boxes, and will provide a stipend to offset production costs. Collectors who buy a share will receive three boxes of locally produced artwork at intervals throughout this upcoming season. The pick-up evenings will be at local venues and will feature music, food and entertainment.
