The McKnight Fellowships for Visual Artists is a highly competitive fellowship program that identifies talented Minnesota visual artists whose work is of exceptional artistic merit and who are at a career stage that is beyond emerging. Each year the program supports established artists by providing unrestricted awards of $25,000 that can help an artist set aside time for study, reflection, experimentation, and exploration; take advantage of an opportunity; or work on a new project.
In addition to the cash award, the fellows invite six nationally recognized critics into their studios for in depth conversations on their work. Four of the critics return to participate in the public panel discussion that pairs one critic with two McKnight Visual Artist Fellows offering audiences an opportunity to learn about the fellowship recipients and how their work intersects with broader contemporary art ideas and concerns.
