The Dayton Visual Arts Center (DVAC) has launched an inaugural program that will allow 50 lucky art lovers a special opportunity to connect with one-of-a-kind visual art and the talented artists behind the limited edition original artworks, according to a media release.

The Community Supported Art Program is a spin on “Community Supported Agriculture” providing art lovers a share of fresh, handcrafted artwork. One art share will provide the shareholder with a crop of six unique, signed pieces of art created in editions of 50, as well as two tickets to a special Harvest Pick-Up Party to be held this summer in August.

A total of 50 shares will be available for $650 a share, according to DVAC.

“Purchasing a DVAC CSA share is an opportunity to collect work by acclaimed local artists at affordable prices, discover emerging artists and support DVAC and the local art community,” said DVAC Executive Director Eva Buttacavoli.

There's only 50 shares available, so it's best to act quickly before they sell out!

Shares will go on sale February 1 to DVAC members and then open up to the general public for sale on Feb. 8. Artists will be announced to the  public on Valentine’s Day Feb. 14.
