CSA PGH is an artist driven outreach model designed to connect with an audience through the production of quality, affordable local art. Share-buyers not only take an active role in supporting the vibrant and growing arts community economically but also ?get to know? the local artists who created the works that comprise the CSA PGH share. CSA PGH is therefore a part of growing a healthy arts community that strengthens the ties between all of the arts community stakeholders. www.csapgh.com
