The SACI Consortium Residency, entirely funded by SACI Founder and Director Emeritus Jules Maidoff, provides artists and scholars with living and studio space in the historic center of Florence during the month of June. Recipients are able to spend a month in one of the world’s greatest art cities, interact with SACI faculty and students, and participate in numerous field trips to other cities in Italy. As Professor Saulnier himself states, “Spending time in front of great paintings is incomparably more impactful on my own painting than any study of reproductions.”
