The JSP Artist Residency will provide artists with opportunities to live and work at JSP, create original artworks for exhibit here, interact with the public and lead workshops and/or community activities as deemed relevant by each resident. It will support artists and the development of their artwork while engaging KY residents and visitors in the visual arts. It will serve our region by hosting internationally recognized artists at JSP to engage a rural audience and landscape and by providing significant support to artists from KY who have been traditionally underserved/under-recognized by national opportunities. Residencies are scheduled to allow each artist time at JSP without the distraction of other residents. In many ways it is more like a retreat, allowing artists the time and space to dive deep into their practice with undivided support from JSP staff as needed. The JSP Residency program is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
On behalf of all Josephine Sculpture Park board and staff, THANK YOU for supporting the park during the 2021 Blue Grass Community Foundation’s GoodGiving Challenge! We won the endowment prize, met our annual fundraising goal, and are set to offer more art and nature programs in 2022. THANK YOU!
Thanks to support from The Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, Josephine Sculpture Park now provides a year-round, eco-friendly, accessible restroom for all park visitors!
This “Enviro Loo” waterless toilet uses natural process, such as passive solar heat and ventilation, to manage waste. This restroom also features a ramp, grab bars, a baby changing station, a trash can, lights, and fun wall art.
We invite you to come play at Josephine Sculpture Park this holiday season! We are open every day for free from dawn to dusk.
