Call for Entry
Call for Entry Deadline

Fiber art is thriving in Minnesota, and the field’s growth as a creative discipline is generously supported by the McKnight Foundation’s McKnight Fellowships for Fiber Artists. This program provides two $25,000 fellowships to be awarded each year to individual midcareer (and beyond!) fiber artists living and working in Minnesota.

In addition to the $25,000 unrestricted award in support of their creative work and practice, McKnight Fiber Artist Fellows will receive:

  • Critiques/studio visits with three experts from the creative field.
  • Exhibition at the end of the fellowship period in the Joan Mondale Gallery at Textile Center.
  • Participation in two public discussions that feature fellows and invited critics or experts from the field.
  • Professional development support, such as attending conferences, workshops, or marketing or exhibition assistance.
  • Access to Textile Center’s resources, including library, dye lab, and artisan shop opportunities.
  • Professional support sessions from consultants at Springboard for the Arts.
  • Opportunity to apply to McKnight Foundation’s new residency partnership with Alliance of Artist Communities, for two years following the fellowship year.

Fellowship Period: January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022
