ABOUT THE C.S.A. 

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, mnartists.org and Springboard for the Arts created a similar endeavor to support local art, artists, and collectors. Community Supported Art is an exciting new model of art support and distribution that supports artists in the creation of new work and establishes relationships with local collectors and patrons.

Just like the motivations behind our annual Winter Holiday Art Market, we not only believe in creating new and greater opportunities for our city’s independent artists to generate income, but creating more opportunities for new collectors to invest in our art community and build meaningful relationships with those artists. Clearly, bringing a CSA program to Houston was just a logical extension of Fresh Arts' current slate of offerings. And it is an honor to host the first CSA in the state of Texas.
