Green Kill is a unique and valuable center for the Arts in the Kingston Area. The very strong poetry community that has coalesced there supports young and new poets and hosts some very seasoned and accomplished ones. It is a place where one can try out new material, new ideas and new modes of expression. There is live music, experimental theater, visual art, and poetry. Clearly this is an artists’ art space and a unique addition to the community.
—Gary Siegel LCSW – Poet
David Schell, a life-long artist, with his partner Yuriko Sasamoto, moved to Kingston, New York with a dream: to bring a new kind of arts space to the Hudson Valley. Now 3 years old, Green Kill is exactly that.
Welcome to Green Kill, a multi-use space for writers, performers, and visual artists.
Green Kill serves student, outsider and established artists with a life-long dedication to their work, and an original vision.
Green Kill has a unique, artist driven, peer-to-peer approach to growth. Peer-to-peer is the voluntary willingness of artists to refer and recommend artists to participate in Green Kill. The reward for the Green Kill community and each participating artist is the growth of Green Kill’s reputation as a destination for diverse, quality art.
This is a new approach to supporting the arts, an inclusive model made possible through the partnership of Green Kill LLC and a national fiscal sponsor for the arts, Fractured Atlas.*
Green Kill’s diversity is demonstrated throughout its programs, including the monthly art exhibition, Voice Less Readings, Showcase, Mashup, Emerging Artist Program, Mozart’s Living Room, Kingston Experimental Theater Company, The Film Program, BYOB Karaoke, and a very broad range of special events.
Before reaching out for community support, Green Kill needed to establish a proof-of-concept. If you have attended any of our events or have visited our website, greenkill.org, then you know what we have accomplished in just three short years. Now Green Kill needs your help to bring it to the next stage in its evolution. A vibrant art scene is emblematic of a thriving community. Please support us. Green Kill is honored to introduce our programs and our funding details.
