Please join The Legal Creative's Board of Directors and special guests on Thursday, April 24, 2014, at Suzie's Dogs & Drafts, 32 & 34 N. Phelps Street, Youngstown, Ohio, beginning at 7:00 PM, as we announce to the public the nine artists selected by our judges for The Legal Creative's inaugural Community Supported Art program. The artists will be notified on Monday, April 21st. Attendees will have the chance to meet some of the local artists who will be creating the works for CSArt, discuss the CSArt proposals with the artists, and ask questions about the creative process.
CSArt shares will be available for purchase at this event at the low presale price of $300 per share. All payment methods will be accepted: credit card, check, or cash. Only 50 shares are available and will sell on a first come, first served basis. Each share includes 9 pieces of original, locally produced, limited edition works of art.
The night's festivities will include drink specials, a one-night-only handcrafted CSArt topping for your favorite dog: cherry mustard and caramelized onion deglazed with rum, and a 50/50 raffle.
MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM
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-local spirit in mind, Community Supported Art (CSArt) is a similar endeavor to support local art – both artists and collectors.
Our local CSArt program is modeled after the original program created by Springboard for the Arts and mnartists.org in Minnesota.
