ArtsMemphis & The CLTV Present “CSA Pick-Up Party & Exhibition Closing Reception”November 3, 2017, 6:00 pm-9:00 pm
Join us for this Exhibition Closing Reception and Pick Up Party in connection with our 2017 Community Support Art (CSA) program.
You’ve heard of Community Supported Agriculture. But what is Community Supported Art? In a nutshell, it’s an exciting new model of art support and distribution for artists that jumpstarts their relationships with local collectors and patrons. Much like agriculture CSAs, it relies on “share” purchases by a community of stakeholders, each of whom receives value in return for their investment. But instead of receiving kale or cauliflower, art CSAs provide shareholders with locally sourced works of art!
ArtsMemphis and The CLTV – a coalition of Memphis-based black artists – are delighted to be partnering on year two of the Memphis art CSA. Together, we’ve commissioned three local artists, Lawrence Matthews III, Matthew Thomas, and Felicia Wheeler, to create a series of work in sets of 25. We’re selling 25 shares in the resulting art collection at $500 per share. Each shareholder will receive three locally produced works of art – one by each of the participating artists.
