Visiting Artists

Visiting Artists

The Siena Art Institute invites professional artists and writers for residencies in Siena throughout the year.  They pursue independent projects while providing insight and inspiration to our participants.  Visiting artists & writers are asked to give a public presentation upon their arrival in Siena to introduce themselves & their work to our community. They are also asked to hold formal critique sessions with our students.


Visiting Artist candidates are selected from around the world through an invitation-only nomination process. The Siena Art Institute does not accept direct applications for our Visiting Artist Program. However, direct applications are accepted for our Summer Residency Program, Studio/Casa Residency Program, and Studio Residency Program.
