The Artist’s House Project, now on view


Kiki Sciullo is one of two artist’s taking part in the Fellowship component of the Artist-in-Residence program. Fellows work with the Art Park for a two year period developing and implementing a large scale, programmatic or infrastructural project. Artists spend a minimum of six weeks on site and are asked to conduct some type of community outreach during their fellowship.

Kiki’s project, The Artist’s House, involves the cataloging and curation of Art Park founder Dorothy Riester’s collection of artwork. Stop by the Hilltop House and follow the red signs and take a peek in the window to see the installation Kiki completed earlier this summer.

This fall, Kiki will help the Cazenovia Agricultural Science classes work on product design and branding for the maple syrup they produce at the Art Park.

View a time lapse of her work here. 


About Kiki


Kiki Sciullo grew up in a log cabin in the wonderfully remote town of DeTour Village in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where she learned to respect and love nature. She earned a BFA in Graphic Design with top honors and the annual design award from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She’s lead a dedicated career with over 15-years of product design, branding and promotional projects for artists and community groups. She has developed countless celebrated products and packaging for national and international markets, and is currently developing public sculpture and interpretive projects in collaboration with a wide range of artists.

Whether working on an installation, an illustration, designing a logo or developing a product Kiki always looks to the past for style reference, inspiration, form, function, and historic context. She will spend hour after hour doing image research and uncovering the meaning of a work before developing her own interpretation, crafting a careful story that she shares with her audience through innovate craft and design projects.
