Pratt Institute and KinoSaito Announce Artist Residency Program

Pratt Institute and KinoSaito recently jointly announced a new partnership – an artist-in-residence fellowship program. The four-week residency program, taking place on site at KinoSaito in Verplanck, will host one fellow from Pratt’s School of Art and one from their School of Design that were selected through competitive application processes.

With the residency announcement was the announcement of the inaugural awardees: Fine Arts Professor John Monti, a sculptor whose work is inspired by botanical drawings, ornaments, religious objects, and custom-car culture; and Communications Design Assistant Professor Anton Ginzburg, an artist, designer and educator, whose works explore visual systems and studies of place, representation, and modernist form.

Says Pratt’s School of Design Dean Anita Cooney: “This type of creative retreat for our faculty is much-needed and allows them to recharge their artistry outside of the classroom. Knowing KinoSaito’s vast studio spaces and idyllic location, I am sure Anton’s work will soar.”
