Franconia Sculpture Park is now accepting applications for our 2017 artist opportunities! Located on 43-acres in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, 45 miles northeast of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. Franconia offers a place where artists live, create, and exhibit three-dimensional artwork. Artists push themselves to achieve new visions at Franconia, beyond what they ever thought was possible. Each artist undergoes a transformation, leaving with a renewed focus, new skills, and lifelong connections.
Artists working in three-dimensions are invited to submit ambitious project proposals for the FSP/Jerome Fellowship program (open to MN & NYC artists) or the Open Studio Fellowship Program (open to artists worldwide). Sculpture, site-specific, multi-media, and installation work are considered. Artists are in residence at Franconia during their fellowship. Residencies start as early as April 1, lasting a minimum of 4 weeks and up to 3 months depending on the nature of the project. Installation must be complete by September 15. Up to 10 artists or artist teams will be awarded funding support, ranging from $3,500 to $5,000, to create and exhibit new work in a public outdoor setting.
