Support Local Artists with Disabilities


November 21, 2016 is the official launch date for the Art Garden CSA program at Matheny’s Arts Access program.  


About Art Garden

CSA stands for Community Supported Art, and is based on the model of Community Supported Agriculture programs that are popular nationwide. The “community” is comprised of any individual or group that purchases one of the 50 available shares. Each share will receive original pieces of artwork by the 10 participating artists over the course of the year, at organized “pick-up” events that also provide opportunities to meet the artists involved.

During the year, the selected artists will work with the Art Garden team to learn and participate in important vocational practices such as self-promotion, marketing through social media, relationship building, and many other entrepreneurial activities that are key to becoming a professional artist.

When you purchase a share in our CSA:

  • you provide individuals with disabilities a path to employment as professional artists.
  • you help forge direct and ongoing connections between artists with disabilities and art buyers in the local community.
