Station North Arts and Entertainment District is pleased to announce the launch of a new project: Community Supported Art (CSA). Based on the same concept as Community Supported Agriculture, the Station North CSA will provide participating shareholders with the freshest art that Baltimore has to offer. We’ve assembled a jury of Station North art celebrities to select artists to produce work for the first season.
At each presentation event (see below for dates), 4 CSA artists will give short presentations on their work and shareholders will rank their preferred artists. Ranking is used to ensure that shareholders aren’t getting a box full of kale at pick-up when they’d rather have beets. These events are also an opportunity to network, mingle, and meet CSA artists. Presentation and pickup events will be catered by the Chesapeake.
The goal of the Station North CSA is to create an engaged community of local arts supporters by establishing relationships between gallerists and local patrons and creating an exciting new model of art support and distribution. Shareholders will each receive work from 6 of the 12 participating artists; art distribution will be determined by shareholders’ preferences.
