Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota is now accepting applications for the 2020 Fellowship Artist Residency Program.
Located in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, Franconia Sculpture Park is a nonprofit arts organization operating a 43-acre outdoor sculpture park, active artist residency, and community arts programming. Franconia Sculpture Park was founded in 1996 by a small group of professional artists who envisioned a supportive artist residency community and outdoor museum. Today, this vision has been achieved through an active artist residency program that serves over 40 artists each year and public programming that serves over 150,000 annual visitors.
Franconia Sculpture Park’s Fellowship Artist Residency Program provides the opportunity for artists and/or artist teams to create ambitious new projects, interact and collaborate with a community of makers, and impact the public. Artists at any stage in their career, working in sculpture, installation, land art, social practice and performance are welcome to apply for residencies for a minimum of three weeks and a maximum of three months between April 5 and September 15, 2020. Selected artists will each receive a private bedroom and shared workspace to create new work at Franconia, along with a $5,000 award to fund their project.
