Individual working artists help to make our communities flourish.
Support for individual artists has been a focus of the McKnight Foundation’s Arts program since its inception. We believe that the arts cannot flourish or enhance community life without the ideas, energy, and drive of individual artists, and that artists cannot make these contributions without unfettered creative time. A fellowship can help an artist set aside periods of time for study, reflection, experimentation, and exploration; take advantage of an opportunity; or work on a new project.
