A Share of Support for The Arts
Imagine if you could attend a farmers’ market, but instead of farm-fresh produce and fresh-baked goods, you take home local art, eat amazing food, and enjoy great performances — and enjoy the satisfaction that comes with meeting new friends.
The Arts Partnership’s Community Supported Art (CSA) invites participants to purchase shares of art that include visual, performing and culinary offerings at three fabulous parties. Participants purchase shares in exchange for visual, performing and culinary offerings at three unique parties hosted by TAP throughout the season.
A Win-Win Program That Benefits Art Creators and Supporters
With each share purchased, TAP reinvests the money toward directly supporting local artists and organizations. CSA participating artists also benefit because they get their works in front — and in the homes — of shareholders.
What to Expect
CSA shareholders get all-access passes to three seasonal parties that include:
- A plus-one ticket to each party
- Live, local music and performances
- Food, cocktails and mocktails catered by the best regional chefs
- Three custom pieces of art created specifically for each CSA event by local artists
Shares Sell Out Fast
To keep the CSA experience fresh, intimate and singular, we limit shares to 50 per year. Shares tend to sell out very fast, so our best advice is to keep yourself in the know about The Arts Partnership happenings throughout the year. You can do that by joining our community on social media and email.

We work hard each season to ensure that shareholders get an interesting range of take-home art and performances – and that each season feels unique from prior seasons. For example, we’ve had jazz singers and spoken word performances, an Americana group and a flute and cello duet. Take home art includes anything from watercolor paintings, ceramic pieces, architectural drawings and turned wood pieces.
Absolutely. CSA shares make a unique gift for the art lovers in your life.
A full share is $500. Cost is $300 for a partial share that includes everything but the take-home art.
A partial CSA share allows you to enjoy the three events each year that includes food, drink and performances, but excludes the take-home art.
