LegalArt is proud to announce the first edition in Miami of the Community Supported Art (CSA) Program, supported by the Knight Foundation and Springboard for the Arts.
Member shares to this innovative program are available for $450 on our website starting January 18th at 11AM EST.
Nine artists have been selected by a jury of food and art luminaries. The artists receive a stipend to create fifty limited edition works. Art lovers and collectors will purchase a share and in return receive locally produced artwork that will be delivered throughout the Season.
Each member share will include one piece from each of the nine CSA featured artists as well as “bumper crops” of additional artwork and other surprises.
The pick-up evenings will be take place in February, March and April at different local art sites where artists and collectors will meet and have the opportunity to talk about the art.
The selected arstists for the first 2012 CSA Program are:
Jenny Brillhart, Jason Hedges, James Herring, Kathleen Hudspeth, Kerry McLaney, Christina Pettersson, Gustavo Roman, Valeria Yamamoto and Michelle Weinberg.
What is Community Supported Art? Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-local spirit in mind, LegalArt is pleased to bring Community Supported Art (CSA) to Miami, to support local art, artists and collectors. This project is modeled on Community Supported Art in Minnesota, created by mnartists.org and Springboard for the Arts.
With this program, our goal is to support artists in the creation of new work, to establish relationships with local collectors and patrons, and to participate in the launch of an exciting new model of art distribution. Share purchasers acquire multiple works of art from local emerging and mid-career artists at a fantastic value! We provide the opportunity to develop relationships with the local artists and art community, discover new artists, explore a variety of disciplines and support artists’ careers and our vibrant community.
LegalArt is seeking partnerships for the CSA program. Partnerships are available in various ways; hosting a delivery event, promotional support, providing space or volunteers and bumper crop partnerships.
