Alexandria's Community Supported Art (CSA)
The City of Alexandria has kicked-off the second annual Community Supported Art (CSA) Program. Through this limited opportunity, participants can beautify their spaces while supporting local art and artists.
Similar to the Community Supported Agriculture model, in which consumers buy seasonal food directly from local farms, Community Supported Art supports local art, artists and collectors. Each participant purchases an “art box,” consisting of six pieces of locally-produced artwork (one from each artist below), in media that includes photography, metal, textile, oil, gelatin silver print and ceramics. Each boxes costs $250, and can be purchased online now!
Art Boxes will be distributed at the Pick-Up Party on Wednesday, September 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Durant Arts Center, 1605 Cameron St.
The following artists are selected to contribute art to the 2017 CSA:
The Alexandria Collaborators (ACT for Alexandria, Alexandria Regional Council for the United Way of the National Capital Area and the City of Alexandria) periodically host organizational capacity-building workshops. The FREE workshops for local non-profit organizations and artists, but require advance registrations. Workshops will be posted here in the future.
