Community Supported Art - Round Three!
Community Supported Art (CSArt), the popular program that connects local buyers with local artists, returns for its third round, with an entirely new lineup of artists. Shareholders pay only $300 per share to receive artwork from each of the nine artists. The art is created exclusively for CSArt, is modest in size and offers a "taste" of an artist's work. Only 50 shares are sold to keep the program's intimate feel.
We have sold out for the past two years, so don't wait!

While only the shareholders will be able to pick up their art, this party is free and open to the public so that everyone can see the artwork and sign up for the next round. The event is co-sponsored by Eastern Bank and the Harvard Square Business Association.

While the artists work on their CSArt projects, other examples of their art will be on display in CCAE’s gallery space, Aug. 1- Oct. 4. Free and open to the public.
