Greetings,
If you’re a mid-career book artist living and working in Minnesota, I warmly invite you to apply for the 2022 McKnight Fellowships for Book Artists, a yearlong fellowship that will transform your artistic path.
Every year, we partner with the McKnight Foundation to recognize two exceptional book artists with this prestigious fellowship, which includes an unrestricted $25,000 award alongside a range of career-building benefits. 
To view the list of benefits and the fellowship timeline, please see further down in this post. On our website, you can read detailed application guidelines and register for one of three virtual information sessions scheduled for early 2022. On December 1, the Submittable link will go live.
I hope you’ll apply—and please share this opportunity with your artist friends across the state!
All the best,
Anika SchneiderDirector of Exhibitions and Artist Programs
