Recognizing the artists and culture bearers who have made significant lifelong contributions to Minnesota, enriching our communities.
The annual $100,000 McKnight Distinguished Artist Award recognizes artists and culture bearers who have made a lifelong commitment to creating art that is locally, regionally, and/or nationally significant.
Wasanii hawa wamechagua kufanya maisha yao na kazi zao huko Minnesota, na hivyo kuifanya hali yetu kuwa na tajiri zaidi ya kiutamaduni. Kwanza kabisa, wamezalisha sanaa ya ubunifu inayoonyesha maoni yao ya kipekee na ya ajabu.
McKnight Distinguished Artists have also inspired other artists and culture bearers, earned acclaim from audiences, patrons, critics, and other arts professionals, and some have founded and strengthened arts organizations.
