The Socrates Annual – formerly known as The Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition – is an annual exhibition of new public art that addresses the most urgent issues of today. Its mission is to foster individual artist projects rather than present an overarching theme and has been ongoing every year since its inception in 1995.

Artist fellowships at Socrates Sculpture Park give artists not only the opportunity to create ambitiously scaled outdoor works but they’re also offered studio and fabrication facilities on site as well.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a digital catalogue to be added to a growing digital library of e-publications and videos available at

Socrates Sculpture Park is open daily from 9AM – sundown.
