The Eau Claire Regional Arts Council and our Community Supported Arts shareholders have supported 35 regional artists in their pursuit of careers in the arts. On display are selected works by our Community Supported Arts artists past and present.

This exhibit furthers the Community Supported Art's mission to support and educate artists and patrons in our region.

What is Community Supported Arts?

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 is a similar endeavor to support local art, artists and collectors. Our local CSA program is modeled on Community Supported Art project created by Springboard for the Arts andmnartists.org in Minnesota. Interested consumers/collectors will purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive three "farm boxes" of locally produced artwork at intervals this season

Benefits of the CSA program include:
  For Artists:
    -Support for the creation of new work
    -Establish relationships with local collectors and patrons
    -Participate in an exciting new model of art support and distribution

  For CSA Members:
    -Receive multiple works from local emerging and mid-career artists at a fantastic value!
    -Develop relationships with the local artists and art community
    -Discover new artists and explore a variety of disciplines
    -Support local artist's careers and a vibrant community
