The Host Program aims to facilitate relationships and open new opportunities for artists and curators alike. On a semiannual basis the Foundation invites up to four established curators to Seattle for short-term visits. During their stay, the Foundation coordinates studio visits and meetings with artists and other arts professionals who are living and working in Seattle.

 This program is currently closed.
