What is CSArt?
In 2011 the Cambridge Center for Adult Education in collaboration with the Somerville Arts Council, the Cambridge Arts Council, Cambridge Local First, and Somerville Local First started CSArt, which was partially funded by an Adams Arts Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council as well as support from Eastern Bank. 2012 is the second year of CSArt.
CSArt uses the model of community supported agriculture to get the work of Boston area artists into the hands of people who want to "buy local." Rather than vegetables, fish, or dairy products, CSArt shareholders receive original works of art created by nine local artists.
How CSArt Works
CSArt shares cost $300. No more than 50 shares will be sold to keep the line of art special. Shareholders will receive three works of art at three "harvest parties" (nine artworks total) – at a fantastic value – from emerging and mid–career artists; develop relationships with local artists; discover new artists; and explore a variety of disciplines. CSArt features unique art, not commercial, mass-produced articles. Thats what makes it special!
We are very grateful to our CSArt partners and supporters:
