WASHINGTON (AP) — The American University Museum is opening new winter exhibits, including a display of “Locally Sourced” art from community supported art programs in six cities.

The exhibit “Locally Sourced” opened Saturday featuring more than 300 small works drawn from local artists in Los Angeles, New York City, Miami, New Orleans, Chicago and Washington. This the first in a series of programs curated by Victoria Reis, the artistic director of Washington’s Transformer gallery.

The museum says “Locally Sourced” highlights programs that link investors with local artists — similar to community supported agriculture programs.

The AU museum also is featuring glass works by Argentinian glassmaker Silvia Levenson, photography by artists in the Photoworks program at Glen Echo Park in Montgomery County, Maryland, and two other exhibits.

The exhibits are open until March 15
