Jessica Frelinghuysen: Community Supported Art Detroit

June 4, 2012

A paper helmet created by A&D lecturer Jessica Frelinghuysen is included in the initial distributions of Community Supported Art (CSA), a new program from ArtServe Michigan that aims to expose new communities to work by Detroit artists.

What does a basket of art look like?

Dozens of metro Detroiters subscribers will find out when the distributions of Community Supported Art (CSA), a new model of buying art, take place over the next three months.

Traditional CSAs — where the “A” stands for agriculture - are familiar. In spring, people sign up to receive weekly baskets of farm products, from garlic to greens, throughout the growing season.

ArtServe Michigan will bring a fresh crop of art to art collectors using the same idea. A dozen artists will create nine original works. The first three will be delivered late this month, including jewelry made of shattered auto glass, a paper helmet (some assembly required), and a music box.
