From local food to local art

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) has become a popular way for consumers to buy seasonal food directly from local farms. With the same buy-direct, buy-local spirit in mind, we launched a similar endeavor to support local art, artists, and collectors.

Community Supported Art in Des Moines

Once a season, make\break collects the freshest work from artists. Painters, photographers, and designers share their produce with CSA shareholders at a pick up party.

This Season

make\break is lining up artists and setting a date for our summer share party. Buy your share now -- it's your ticket to the 2015 harvest of art.
