Peter Frantz is a third generation artist, born in Tyrone, Pennsylvania. He attended the University of Notre Dame, Goddard College and attained his Master of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2007.

He is a sculptor, installation artist and printmaker who emphasizes the use of multiple ordinary materials, such as glass and cast bronze, in combination with video, light and sound to stress the use of art as means of conversation and community.

Much of his work uses the arch or the elliptical forms as a metaphor for continuity across spatial and emotional distances. Frantz explores the non-traditional and non-fixed relationships the sculptures create between viewers who are not in proximity to each other.

In the late 90's and early 2000’s, Frantz worked with wood, steel and other mixed materials, whose "content" was their suspension of belief, or the inclusion of uncertainty.

His most recent solo exhibition was held from May through August 2007 at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art.
