Emerging artists connect with the local community as part of this subscription service.
Brooklyn Community Supported Art+Design (CSA+D) gives New Yorkers the opportunity to purchase shares in exchange for pieces of original artwork that have yet to be created.
Following the model of Community Supported Agriculture, in which shareholders invest in a farm and receive a monthly share of fruits and vegetables, CSA+D will be a subscription service for art and design produced by emerging artists and designers.
Through a juried process, artists and designers are chosen to create 50 pieces, with each full share consisting of works across several disciplines, potentially including painting, printing, sculpture, textile, decorative objects, ceramics, music, lighting, t-shirt, collage and books.
Shares are available for purchase at two price points ($500 for 6 pieces and $250 for 3 pieces) for the Fall 2013 inaugural season.
Take a look at the kind of work you can expect from buying shares in CSA+D, it’s unlikely you will be disappointed:
