  The Idea  
 

Like a Community Supported Agriculture program, our CSA program supports a direct maker-to-buyer relationship between artists and collectors working and living in the Philadelphia region. Over the last 20 years, Community Supported Agriculture has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-local spirit in mind, Grizzly Grizzly and Tiger Strikes Asteroid's Community Supported Art is a endeavor to support local art, artists, and collectors. 
Since its inception by Springboard for the Arts in Minneapolis, MN (2010) this model has gained a lot of notoriety and has been replicated throughout the country.  The goal of both Grizzly Grizzly and TSA is to cultivate an open, authentic, and deep connection between artists and collectors. This program seeks to create dialog through a series of events revolved around local, innovative artwork.

 
     
  How it Works  
 

Grizzly Grizzly and Tiger Strikes Asteroid have commissioned nine artists to make 50 “shares” for this program.  These shares range from sculptures to DIY rings to prints to paintings to drawings to records.  Each work is unique; and even multiples have been individualized.  The commissioned artists were curated by both collectives, and we believe the work to be truly exceptional.

Interested consumers/collectors will purchase a share (aka a “membership” or a “subscription”) and in return will receive 3 “farm boxes” of locally produced artwork at intervals through season.  The first pickup will be in October 2012 and the last in January 2013. Click here to find out more about the three pick-up events.
 
     
  The Cost  
 
Each share costs $450 for nine pieces of artwork.
There will be only fifty shares available on a first-come basis.
Shares will be available starting on July 19, 2012 at 10:00am by clicking here.
 
     
 

Grizzly Grizzly is an artist collective established in 2009. Tiger Strikes Asteroid is an artist collective established in 2008. Both are based in Philadelphia, PA, and are dedicated to programming and exhibitions in emerging contemporary art.

Community Supported Art has been supported by a grant from Springboard for the Arts, funded in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. It is one of two inaugural CSA programs in Philadelphia. For more information about the other CSA program, by the Philadelphia Folklore Project, go to www.folkloreproject.org/programs/csa.php
