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.

They are born figuratively speaking with a brush, a pencil or guitar in hand. Regardless of life circumstances, they follow a personal journey of creative growth.
These people are born into a range of economic circumstances. Some have trust funds, others have to work two jobs to support themselves.
These people are a gift us. Their special vision lifts us up, informs us about our humanity. These people, painters, writers and performers, are artists and Green Kill was conceived to give them a special home, built on a foundation of diversity and inclusiveness.
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 other 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 monthly art exhibitions, Words Carry Us, Showcase, The Fringe Variety Hour, The Classical Music Program, The Film Program, 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.
