Interesting Art CSA.

We heard about this cool non profit organization called Brooklyn Community Supported Art + Design.  It basically works like a CSA but instead of supporting local farms or artisans it helps local artists, as well as art lovers.  Here's some more info below. 

CSA+D Brooklyn aims to bridge this divide, connecting up-and-coming artists with up-and-coming art collectors, providing local support to emerging artists and designers while creating a new, easier way for people to collect locally-produced work. You can learn more about how the service works by watching our campaign video.

How can you help?
We've launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise $4,000 in 3 weeks to help us finish what we've started and guarantee a strong financial footing for future seasons.
Donate: Donations through our Indiegogo campaign are tax-deductible, and even $10 can help get us there. Donors who contribute larger amounts will receive unique CSA+D gifts and can even pre-purchase a share or half-share with their donation.

Spread the word: If you can't donate right now, no worries! Liking us on Facebook, following us on Twitter or forwarding this email to friends and family and getting the word out to your networks are all great ways to support this project.

Recruit artists and designers: If you know artists and designers (or are one yourself) in the greater New York region who would like to submit a  proposal of 50 works for a $3,000 commission, send them to our application page now! The deadline is coming up on July 8th.

Recruit shareholders: Would you or someone you know in New York like to receive six works of art and design for $500, or three for $250 this fall? You can sign up to get notified when shares become available here.
