Studio Art Centers International is pleased to announce the second year of its exciting 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.

SACI will offer in June 2015 a month-long residency in Florence, Italy to an artist or scholar. The recipient of this award will have the unique opportunity to live and work in one of the world’s great art cities—and to interact with SACI’s faculty and students and participate in diverse school activities.

The residency includes a fully-equipped one-bedroom apartment in the historic center of Florence, near SACI’s two Renaissance palazzi. This year the apartment will be available from June 1 to June 26. 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. The recipient is encouraged to give presentations in SACI classes about his or her art or scholarly work, join SACI instructors in critiquing students’ work, and to exchange ideas with SACI faculty and students.
