Intern Artist Program at Franconia Sculpture Park


2016 Intern Artist Program

Deadline: February 6, 2016 via email by MIDNIGHT CST

The Intern Artist Program at Franconia offers undergraduate and graduate students, as well as emerging artists the opportunity to create large-scale three-dimensional artwork, develop their nascent artistic practice, receive mentorship from professional artists-in-residence, conduct public presentations, and participate in public engagement programs while in residency at Franconia. The rural setting and chance to work along side peers & mid-career artists creates a dynamic setting for artists to grow, learn, and mature.



The Intern Artist Program is the brainchild of John Hock, co-founder and Artistic Director/CEO, based on pivotal experiences he had as a young artist. The program began with the park’s founding in 1996 and has grown to support more than 200 emerging artists to date. Recognized by the National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts for program excellence, the program is designed to bridge the gap between the academic world of artistic training and a professional career.

• Intern Artists should be career bound or pre-professional artists who are in the final stages of the undergraduate   coursework. Individuals in a graduate program or those that consider themselves emerging artists should apply.
• Intern Artists commit to working for the Park at least 5 hours a day.
• International applicants are welcome to apply.

Application materials must be received by MIDNIGHT CST on February 6, 2016.
Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. You will receive a confirmation email upon receipt of application materials. If you do not receive a confirmation email, your application materials were not received correctly. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact Franconia Staff if you do not receive a confirmation email to ensure your materials were received. Applicants will be notified in March on the status of their application.
