2018 Shandaken Storm King Residents: Francheska Alcantara and Melanie McLain

Congrats to MFA student Francheska Alcantara and MFA alum Melanie McLain, 2018 Shandaken Storm King Residents!

Widely celebrated as one of the world’s leading sculpture parks, Storm King Art Center has welcomed visitors from across the globe for over fifty years. The residency program provides unstructured time for artists of all disciplines who will live and work together for two to six weeks, with three artists on site at a time. This intimate scale encourages dialogue between residents, while the private setting of Storm King Art Center’s grounds allows for intense focus on individual practice. The artists are housed together on Storm King’s site and are each given a simple, private studio, following plans developed and executed for Shandaken’s original campus.
