Franconia Sculpture Park 2022 Artist-in-Residence applications are now open! There are two new exciting opportunities for Artist Families and Writers.

For information on all residencies please visit: https://www.franconia.org/artist-opportunities/

For their 26th residency year, Franconia Sculpture Park is encouraging applicants with an interest in work rooted in the intersection of art and ecology, including but not limited to: performance; sound art; public interventions; site-specific and ephemeral installation; the rural and natural landscape; earthworks; collaborative works with nature; indigenous history and storytelling; and land and water rights.

Fellowship Residencies

Stipend: $5,000
Spring (April 6, 2022 – June 15, 2022)
Summer (June 22, 2022 – August 31, 2022) Fall (September 7, 2022 – November 23, 2022)

The Franconia Fellowship supports mid-career artists with a $5000 stipend and the opportunity to stay between 3 weeks and 3 months during their Open-Call residencies. This is a self-directed residency, and Fellows are responsible for developing, producing, and installing their work.

Emerging Artist Residencies

Stipend: $750
Spring (April 6, 2022 – June 15, 2022)
Summer (June 22, 2022 – August 31, 2022) Fall (September 7, 2022 – November 23, 2022)

The Emerging Artist Residency represents 25 years that Franconia Sculpture Park has upheld a long-running work exchange model that equally cares for artists and organizational sustainability. While offering professional support and growth to emerging artists, the 50-acre sculpture park receives site and operational support with the help of their Emerging Artist Residents. This is a process-based residency. The rural setting and the chance to work alongside peers, mid-career artists, and visiting art curators create a dynamic setting for critical, technical, and professional growth within a collaborative exchange model.

Artist Family Residencies

Stipend: $2000
July 12-16, 2022 or July 19-23, 2022 | Youth (Aged 8-13) July 26-30, 2022 | Teen Intensive (Grades 9-12)

The Artist Family Residency supports Artist Parents and Artist Youth alike with a one-week residency at Franconia during July. Coinciding with their Youth Installation Summer Camps, Artist Youth are invited to camp during the day while the Artist Parent can be on-site for research or production. For artist parents, this is a self-directed residency. The Artist Family benefits both from the individual creative process and also through togetherness. A culminating Parents & Community sharing of Summer Camp Works provides a joined capstone experience for the Artist Family.

Writer’s Residency

January 19 – February 2 or February 9
Entry Fee: First two weeks FREE; $25 thereafter / $15 Franconia Alumni
Stipend: $1000
The Writers Residency will accept 3 to 4 accomplished writers to join Franconia Sculpture Park in 2022. Writers span a range of arts-focused disciplines and will receive a stipend, full room & board, and a two to a three-week residency at the 50-acre outdoor sculpture park. The writers-in-residence in this program will immerse themselves in the new environment and embrace the time and space to move forward in their work.
