Buy a share, collect art.
It's really that easy. Nine jury-selected artists each create an edition of original works. Out of the edition, one piece goes to your share. Over the course of a season—about 3 months—you get nine limited-edition pieces of art, created specifically for CSA STL members. You'll pick them up at three pick-up events, which will take place in creative spaces throughout the city.
Member shares for the 2015 season will go on sale sometime in the spring.
CSA STL casts a wide net for working artists strictly from the St. Louis area. Nine are chosen by a distinguished and diverse jury of notable arts leaders. They choose artists from varying disciplines—performance, painting, sculpture, music, writing—ensuring the quality of the art produced and making each season's share eclectic and unique.
