titled, “The Right to Experience Art,” discusses the “community supported art” program from St. Paul’s Springboard for the Arts
Through the program, people can buy “shares” in local art, the same way they would buy food from local farmers through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
The story highlights comments from Laura Zabel, who leads Springboard.
Zabel is quoted as saying, "The art is wonderful and it's always beautiful, but the purpose of the program is to build tight relationships between artists and the community," adding, "We found this incredible audience for this project of people who care about their local economy and community but aren't necessarily from the art community."
