The International Sculpture Center (ISC) currently supports artists with three residency programs: art-st-urban in Switzerland, Student Award winners at Grounds For Sculpture, Student Award winners at Josephine Sculpture Park, and Mana Contemporary. The ISC established residency programs as a way to expand on programming and provide members an additional opportunity to work with fellow artists in a studio environment.

The ISC is thrilled about its ever growing residency programs as just one of the many exciting benefits for our members. To learn more about our residencies contact, 609-689-1051 ext 319. To become a member and explore your opportunities contact, 609-689-1051 ext 301


ISC Residency @ Mana includes:
  • 3 month residency at Mana Contemporary's BSMT
  • Mana Residencies give local and international visual artists the opportunity to work at the organization's prestigious New Jersey headquarters.
  • The opportunity to freely develop and expand their practice with the benefits of additional space, a strong community, and ongoing support.
  • Participants are immersed in the art complex, which includes resources such as the Keating Foundry and the Gary Lichtenstein Editions print shop, as well as Mana's art storage, handling, and framing services.
  • Artists-in-residence also receive a strategic introduction to the curators, collectors, and other art world professionals who regularly visit the organization.
  • Residents will be featured in Sculpture, and re:sculpt, the ISC Blog.
