Founded on the belief that Minnesota thrives when its artists thrive, the McKnight Foundation’s arts program is one of the country's oldest and largest of its kind. Support for individual working Minnesota artists has been a cornerstone of the program since it began in 1982. The McKnight Artist Fellowship Program provides annual, unrestricted cash awards to outstanding mid-career Minnesota artists in 14 creative disciplines. Program partner organizations administer the fellowships and structure them to respond to the unique challenges of other disciplines. Through this cooperation with its program partners, the McKnight Artist Fellowships Program is able to reflect the rich diversity of cultures and aesthetics found within our state.
