Open call for Latino Artists in the Bay Area

For SF Bay Area artists

MACLA is now accepting Bay Area Latino artist proposals for its 2014 Community Supported Arts (CSA) Program.

MACLA’s CSA program supports Latino artists by helping them to create and distribute their artwork through new channels. Concurrently, this program gives first-time and experienced art collectors the opportunity to own locally made, limited-edition art.

Through an open call and a selection process a selection of artists are chosen to create 50 “shares” for the CSA program. A typical share consists of a work of art/object of artistic production, usually a multiple or limited edition. The selected artists receive a stipend of $1,000, great connections to local collectors, and promotional support. Interested collectors purchase a share (similar to a membership subscription) for $350 and in return receive two “farm boxes” of three locally produced artworks twice a year. The “farm boxes” are picked up at evening events that feature music, food and entertainment.
