THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT is Franklin Furnace's artist residency program. Franklin Furnace offers artists an honorarium and a residency facilitated by Franklin Furnace, for a 2-4 month duration at a physical or online venue appropriate to the artists' work. For THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2002, we hope to continue to expand the technology available to our artists through Parsons School of Design and beyond.


Since 1997, Franklin Furnace's virtual presenting programs have been made possible by the faith and foresight of Jerome Foundation; The Greenwall Foundation; the Heathcote Art Foundation; The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology; the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; the New York State Council on the Arts' Technology Initiative; and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc.
