Founded in 1996, Franconia Sculpture Park is a professional artists’ organization dedicated to providing diverse programs of creation, education and experimentation. The outdoor sculpture park is open 365 days a year, from dawn until dusk, allowing visitors to tour its collection of over 75 contemporary sculptures. Franconia Sculpture Park gives emerging artists the experience of working and exhibiting with more established artists.
The Franconia Sculpture Park actively recruits student artists, postgraduate artists and museum studies students to participate in its intern/mentor program. Half of an intern’s time is spent on his/her own sculptural work, while the other half is spent on park duties. All interns create work to be included in the park exhibition. In addition, they assist visiting artists with fabrication, site preparation and installation of 3-D work, landscaping and maintenance.
