The Siena Art Institute Onlus is a small non-profit arts organization based in the heart of Siena, Italy, one of the oldest and most beautiful university towns in Italy. We welcome artists from all disciplines who are interested in the intersection of art and civic life, and who wish to explore how the theoretical content of our individual practices can be translated into socially-meaningful projects that produce a deeper understanding of the cultures in which we find ourselves.
We offer a unique study program for Undergraduate and Post-Baccalaureate art & writing students. We also offer Intensive Summer & Winter Courses, our City Arts Programs, Summer Residencies, Studio/Casa Residencies, Studio Residencies, Project Fellowships, and our Visiting Artist Program.
