WELCOME TO BROOKLYN'S FIRST CSA FOR ART AND DESIGN.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Community Supported Art & Design is a new way to collect art and support emerging artists and designers.
Brooklyn Community Supported Art + Design is a subscription service for art and design produced by emerging artists and designers. Following the model of Community Supported Agriculture, in which shareholders invest in a farm and receive a monthly share of fruits and vegetables, Brooklyn Community Supported Art + Design connects shareholders directly to the artists and designers.
Through a juried process, artists and designers are chosen to create 50 pieces for the CSA+D. Each full share consists of works across several disciplines, potentially including painting, printing, sculpture, textile, decorative objects, ceramics, music, lighting, t-shirt, collage and books.
The Brooklyn CSA+D makes contemporary art and design accessible by
connecting emerging artists and designers to the community, and in
return that community provides significant support for their work.
Shares are available for purchase at two price points ($500 for 6 pieces
and $250 for 3 pieces) for the Fall 2013 inaugural season.
