KinoSaito Residency Program is a studio + residency program designed to provide artists with the space and time necessary to focus concentrated attention on any part of their practice they feel is ripe for development. The program hosts two artists at a time for six-week sessions during the months of March through November, ensuring that practicing artists, their ideas and their energy will be a constant presence at KinoSaito. Each artist is given a generously proportioned 900 sf studio with large windows and high ceilings, a loft living quarters, a kitchenette, and a private bathroom. Regular open studio events invite visitors to talk with artists and see works-in-progress.
