Opportunity 1

2018 Artist Fellowships @ Franconia Sculpture Park

Deadline: February 3, 2018

Franconia Sculpture Park is now accepting applications for our 2018 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.

Opportunity 4

Arts Administration Internship @ Franconia Sculpture Park

Deadline for Program Intern: April 1, 2018
Deadline for Development Intern:
July 1, 2018

Franconia Sculpture Park’s Arts Administration Internship provides ‘hands-on’ immersion in the daily operations of a progressive arts organization located in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, 45 miles NE of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. Franconia provides residence and workspace to emerging and established artists in a 43-acre sculpture park.

There are two different types of administrative interns. Program interns will support Franconia’s education & public programing. The Development intern will work directly with the development manager to support fundraising campaigns. Both interns work closely with Franconia’s staff so interns have a rare opportunity to be immersed in many types of projects and work experiences.

This type of internship is best suited for those interested in exploring public art, museum studies, arts administration, or nonprofit management careers. Primary responsibilities include assisting staff with day-to-day operations of the artist and education programs and may include helping with research; social networking outreach; marketing and publicity; graphic/web design; photography; database management; and assisting with activities that help promote Franconia and enhance public participation.

Arts Administration Internships are unpaid and last two to four months. This internship is flexible and can be scheduled to accommodate other commitments and varying time frames. We require a commitment of at least 16 hours a week for locally based interns who commute to Franconia. Interns who stay in residence at Franconia (free room & board) contribute at least 32 hours per week.

Franconia agrees to work with the intern to fulfill any necessary academic requirements and address any identified learning goals/objectives.
