Portland's Community Supported Art (PDX-CSA) supports the creation of new art and allows the community to be engaged in the lifespan of artwork, from concept to completion.

PDX-CSA solicits proposals from artists for new art projects, then selects the highest quality projects (sometimes around a theme) and presents them to the public. Pre-sales fund the creation of the new artwork and determine the number of artworks made. Collectors can then follow the progress of their artwork as it's made through updates from the artists.
