Community-Supported Art (CSArt) Nashville is a yearly art subscription service of locally produced art. Much like Community Supported Agriculture, in which shareholders invest in a local farm and receive a monthly payout of fruits and vegetables, CSA Nashville asks shareholders to invest directly in the arts community with a “buy local” mentality. The program offers a reasonably priced way to support Nashville and regional artists and receive limited edition contemporary artist projects in return.
Ranging from emerging to mid-career, participating artists have exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally, from the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville, TN, Museum of Modern Art in Klagenfurt, Austria, The White House, Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Istanbul Biennial, Banff Center in Alberta Canada, Boston Center for the Arts, Seed SPACE and Zeitgeist Gallery.
CSArt Nashville is an opportunity for collectors to access exclusive editions of their work at an affordable price. Seed Space is excited to become part of a national movement to create sustainable models to fund local artists and contemporary art affordable and accessible, drawing inspiration from Community-Supported Art program of Springboard for the Arts in Minneapolis, MN, Alula Editions, Threewalls Chicago, The Present Group and The Thing Quarterly in California and the Risograph CSA Project in Grand Rapids, MI.
