Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative has come together to offer another year of Community Supported Art.
Our CSA delivers powerful and inspirational political artworks by Justseeds artists to your mailbox throughout the year!
“Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasure to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies. To be led by a tyrant is to is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery.”
– Octavia Butler
2020 implies perfect vision. The year 2020 will see one of the most significant elections in our lifetimes. It will mark the 75th anniversary of the first detonation of a nuclear device (July 16, 1945) in New Mexico known as the Trinity Test, a technology later used in August of the same year to decimate Nagasaki and Hiroshima. However, on a positive note, 2020 will mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of abolitionist Frederick Douglass and the 100thanniversary of the birth of freedom fighter and humanitarian, Nelson Mandela. It is the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting women the right to vote. Additionally, the National Trails System will be celebrating it’s 50th anniversary in 2020. In looking back to these anniversaries, we also look forward to our dreams for a more just, equitable, biodiverse future. Artists, activists, cultural workers have the potential to realize the impossible, to create visions for lasting change, beyond what our elected leaders proscribe. What’s your 2020 vision?
For our 2020 Community Supported Art (CSA) subscriptions, inspired by forward thinking writers like Octavia Butler, Justseeds artists are projecting our visions of a more just futuristic world into a set of limited edition prints, available only to subscribers. These subscriptions really sustain the work that we do, of creating graphics and print work in tandem with movements for collective liberation. Join us!
Your Community Supported Art subscription will provide you with exclusive new art for every month of 2020 in an edition printed only for subscribers. The money we raise through subscriptions will fund future projects and the work we consistently do tying social and environmental justice issues to graphics and compelling art.
You will also be supporting an organization that is 100% artist run/owned and collectively operated!
CSA members will have three new prints shipped to their house in four installments throughout the year! With each package, you’ll get a statement about prints from the artists, connecting you with the artist’s intention, inspiration, and backstory.
There’s two ways to sign up: Pay in full now, or pay in quarterly installments!
This year’s participating artists are listed below! Thank you for believing in what we do!
