The Drop is now called Community Supported Art

Pelican Bomb is committed to making New Orleans a viable and supportive place for artists to live and work. One way we’re helping to do this is through our Community Supported Art program. Pelican Bomb works directly with the city’s most exciting artists to create limited edition works of art that are then made available to the public for just $80. Whether you’re a seasoned art collector or just starting your collection, the Community Supported Art program is a unique opportunity to affordably access high-quality, limited edition works made exclusively for us by New Orleans-based artists.

Pelican Bomb works with emerging to mid-career artists from concept to completion. Through a series of meetings, professional development sessions, and studio visits with guest curators, each work is the culmination of a months-long process. Participating artists have shown locally, nationally, and internationally, ranging from the New Orleans Museum of Art to the Brooklyn Museum and Lyon Biennale.

Pelican Bomb’s Community Supported Art program is part of a nationwide movement to rethink how nonprofits can create sustainable models to better serve local artist communities. Collect with confidence and support your New Orleans artists.
