Community Supported Art Chicago

Community Supported Art Chicago

Community Supported Art Chicago is a yearly art subscription of engaging, innovative, and locally produced art. The program is modeled after Community Supported Agriculture, in which shareholders invest in a local farm and receive a regular payout of produce. CSA Chicago works in a similar way—but instead of vegetables, shareholders receive limited editions by artists who live and work in Chicago.

Purchasing a CSA Chicago share presents an opportunity to:

Collect work by acclaimed artists at affordable prices
Discover emerging artists
Support Chicago’s art community
Sustain Threewalls’ vital programming

Ranging from emerging to mid-career, participating artists have exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the New Museum (NYC), Kunstmuseum Bonn, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, among others. Pieces by CSA artists are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art (NYC), the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), and the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, among many other institutions.

Since 2011, Threewalls has been at the forefront of a national movement to create sustainable models to support artists and to make contemporary art more affordable and accessible.
