ArtCrop is available with the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA) CSA
ArtCrop is a limited membership subscription. When you join, your share is an investment in Hmong Artists & Farmers. This share comes in the form of a box, featuring Hmong art and food.
The HAFA x ArtCrop CSA reflects a special relationship between the artist, the farmer and the consumer community. Customers pay in advance for a share of fresh produce and a unique piece of artwork brought to you by Hmong farmers and artists. This year's subscription share will arrive just in time for the Hmong New Year, a celebratory tradition succeeding the harvest season (right before Thanksgiving). Together, art and food forges a profound tribute to the Hmong cultural experience and supports the makers that produce it. We invite you to a more rooted cultural experience. Buy the 2018 ArtCrop share here.
Xee Reiter as the 2018 ArtCrop artist
Xee was selected because of her passion for illustrating life all around her, depicting Hmong American joy through her family’s adventures with food and fun.
Xee is a self-taught artist specializing in watercolor, pen, and ink illustrations. As a first generation Hmong American, you can largely find cultural influences in her works. Her artistic exploration includes but is not limited to portraiture, art journaling, mural art, typography and calligraphy works. During the warm season, she enjoys and sketches her family’s local explorations. Xee lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota with her husband and three kids. You’ll find her with sketch books, pens and pencils doodling across the cities, from park trails to Hmong Village, as well as in her own backyard where she has started an mini urban farm and garden, complete with chickens and a wide variety of plants and vegetables with her family.
She has worked with local cultural organizations such as Little Mekong, Hmong Museum, and the Minnesota Museum of American Art to connect community through her artistry. She is pleased to create the 2018 ArtCrop share, available exclusively for the HAFA Thanksgiving CSA, inspired her roots in gardening, farming, and cooking from childhood to now. Follow Xee on Instagram and Facebook.
