Franconia Sculpture Park is encouraging applicants with an interest in work rooted in the intersection of art and ecology, including but not limited to: performance; sound art; public interventions; site-specific and ephemeral installation; the rural and natural landscape; earthworks; collaborative works with nature; indigenous history and storytelling; and land and water rights.  

Award: $5,000 stipend and a three-week to three-month residency during which Fellows are responsible for developing, producing, and installing their work.
