Fellows receive a $5000 stipend towards the creation and presentation of their work in the rotating outdoor exhibition at Franconia Sculpture Park for up to two years. The Franconia Fellowship Residency supports emerging, mid-career, and established artists, and is open to local, national, and internationally based artists. We provide time, space, and resources for artists towards the development, production, and installation of their work. Fellows receive valuable professional development opportunities such as access to visiting curators; studio visits, field trips; public talks; workshops; receive production support from site managers upon request and pending availability; and the potential to revisit Franconia as an alumni member. Fellows choose to stay between three weeks and three months, dependent on approval. More about the Fellowship application at franconia.org/fellowship-application/
Franconia’s 2021 theme is Authority, Visibility, and Public Space. Priority will be given to applicants who are encouraged to interpret this theme with regard to their project proposals.
