Charleston Supported Art (CSA) has introduced a new model for art distribution to the Holy City area. Modeled after the popular Community Supported Agriculture programs, CSA has created a program that will offer art lovers the opportunity to purchase "seasonal shares of original art created by a select group of local artists." Shares are already available for purchase.

The program consists of three seasons per year with six artists featured per season. There will be a total of 18 local visual artists who will provide their work to the program.

Each collectors will receive six pieces of original art for each share they purchase. Shares are $450 and will be delivered at seasonal pick-up events.

The artists and their assigned seasons are:
