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.
