Community Supported Art : Boston ARTchives

Hi Friends, 

There is a really exciting project that has formed in Boston and I'm very happy to be a part of it: Boston ARTchives 

"Inspired by popular and effective CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) models and innovative product-sharing models (Netflix, Zipcar, local tool banks, etc.), Boston area artists are pooling together their art and lending it out through Boston ARTchives.  Subscribers select pieces from the large, diverse ARTchives Collection and enjoy a rotating exhibit of local art on their very own walls.  Their membership fees are distributed evenly amongst the artists.  Boston ARTchives is operated by artists, for artists. Experience the thrill of being a collector without the prohibitive expense and storage concerns.  Experience the satisfaction of being a supporter of local arts in a new and exciting way.  Become a member today!"

I hope you will take a moment to check out the site and see what the project is all about - and help us spread the word! You can also become a fan of ARTchives on facebook and follow on twitter

Artsome. Thanks for reading friend.
