Borrowing from the farm model of Community Supported Agriculture, the
CSA program for the Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center
offered local artists and art buyers a creative opportunity
to engage and connect. The CSA program was designed to support artists
and to create an engaged community of local arts supporters. The idea
for this project originated with the Minneapolis, Minnesota based group Springboard for the Arts
and we’re grateful for
their enthusiasm and support.
I was one of nine artists selected to create a series of 25 new works. Each
artist receives a stipend to assist in the production of the work to be
distributed through the CSA. Buyers purchased
one of 25 shares from the Delaplaine and in return recieved three
boxes of locally produced artwork at three pick up events.
