I am participating in the threewalls 2012 CSA.
threewalls is pleased to announce the current round of our popular Community Supported Art program, Spring 2012 edition, featuring editioned artwork by Elijah Burgher, Derek Chan, Dan Devening, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Dianna Frid, Kelly Kaczynski, Betsy Odom, and Bernard Williams.I am participating the Three Walls 2012 CSA by providing an edition.
Community-Supported Art Chicago is a twice-yearly art subscription service of locally produced art. Borrowing the model of Community-Supported Agriculture, where consumers invest in a local farm and get a monthly payout of fruits and vegetables, threewalls asks shareholders to invest directly in the arts community with that same mentality. CSA Chicago makes the process of collecting contemporary art affordable and accessible.
How it works: The program offers a reasonably priced way to support Chicago artists and receive limited edition contemporary artist projects in return. This season, the edition size is more limited: 30 pieces only. Shares cost $400 for a single share of 4 artworks and $850 for a family-size share of 8 artworks, including 2 tickets to threewalls spring gala (value $200.00). Subscribers receive signed and numbered artworks at two release events in late May and late June. Shares are a curated mix of mediums, disciplines and conceptual projects, each one will be unique.
To buy your CSA, please visit here to purchase. Our edition sizes are now smaller, and they sell-out fast!
