Watch this video about what inspires me about this program:

MACLA is proud to launch its first Community-Supported Art (CSA) program, which supports Latino artists by helping them to create and distribute their artwork through new channels. Concurrently, this program gives first-time and experienced art collectors the opportunity to own regionally made, limited-edition art.

CSA artists participate in an exciting new model of creation and distribution, and member collectors receive multiple works from local emerging and mid-career artists at a fantastic value, and support local artists’ careers.

Each CSA bag contains 7 limited-edition, original artworks, one from each artist as shown below; the 7th piece is a custom designed art bag by Sam Rodriguez. Buy a share for $350 on EventBrite.


Pick up your bag at the CSA Pick-up Party during South First Fridays, August 1, 2014, 6:30 p.m. Enjoy food, drinks and entertainment, and meet the artists and your fellow collectors!
