Studio Art Centers International is pleased to announce an exciting new residence opportunity open to artists or scholars currently teaching at a college or university that is a member of the SACI Consortium. Member institutions are listed here.
Beginning this summer SACI will offer in June a month-long residency in Florence, Italy to an artist or scholar.

This year the apartment will be available from June 3 to June 27. The award recipient will also receive studio or office space at SACI, access to the SACI Worthington Library, and have the opportunity to participate in SACI field trips to Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena, Fiesole, Arezzo and other important sites in Tuscany.
