How it works
Selected artists or designers receive a $3,000 commission to create 50 pieces, which can be part of an edition ex: a series of etchings in an edition of 50 signed prints or a photograph in an edition of 50 prints, or 50 signed serigraphs. Or you may choose to provide unique, individual works.
CSA+D is looking for a diverse range of work across disciplines—including printmaking, photography, collage, table-top, book art, ceramics, textiles, t-shirt designs, drawings, paintings, calendars and more. Each participating artist or designer will receive a $3,000 commission for the edition they create and there is no fee to apply. Artists are not required to reside in Brooklyn as long as they can deliver work to a specific Brooklyn location on the required date. Commissions will be paid to artists/designers upon delivery of the work to CSA+D.
Interested collectors will be able to purchase a share (or half share) from CSA+D, the shares are $500 for 6 pieces and $250 for 3 pieces.
