Community Supported Art is an exciting new model of art support and distribution for artists that establishes relationships with local collectors and patrons.

Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-direct, buy-local spirit in mind, and Springboard for the Arts created a similar way to support local art, artists, and collectors.
