Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
The McKnight Visual Artists Fellowships is a highly competitive 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.
