About the 2023 Fellowship:
Fiber art is thriving in Minnesota, and the field’s growth as a creative disciple is generously supported by the McKnight Foundation’s McKnight Fellowships for Fiber Artists. This program provides two $25,000 fellowship awards each year to individual midcareer (with sustained careers and beyond!) fiber artists living and working in Minnesota. Fellowship dates are January 1 – December 31, 2023.
In addition to the unrestricted cash award, McKnight Fiber Artist Fellows receive professional development support and access to Textile Center’s staff expertise, networks, retail shop, state-of-the-art dye lab, and library of more than 33,000 books and periodicals. Fellows participate in an exhibition at Textile Center, along with critiques and discussions with nationally renowned professionals in the field. Fellows also receive the opportunity to participate in McKnight Foundation’s residency partnership with the Artist Communities Alliance.
