Highlights from the February 2018 Edition of SACI Graduate Open Studios
Our latest edition of Open Studios offered the public the opportunity to explore the inspiring spaces in the Jules Maidoff Palazzo for the Visual Arts, a fully renovated Renaissance palace in the center of Florence. Visitors were able to wandered through the many graduate studios housed on the first and third floors while discovering artwork of various mediums within a maze of creativity. The event presented a unique chance to engage in dialogue with emerging international artists and designers.
Participants included students in the MFA in Studio Art, MFA in Photography, MFA in Communication Design, and Post-Bac in Studio Art programs at SACI. Students presented a wide variety of artwork using exciting methods such as live drawing, video projections, immersive installations, and even tarot card readings. Visitors also had a chance to speak with the MFA and Post-Bac program directors.
