The Artist Fellowships for Photographers support mid-career artists residing in Minnesota who use photo- graphy as a primary means of creative, personal expression. Four fellowships of $25,000 each will be awarded in June 2009 to en- able the recipient artists to study, reflect, experiment, and explore over a twelve-month period with the support and assis- tance from and the McKnight Foundation. In addition to the monetary award, each fellow’s work will appear in a public exhibition.

McKnight contributes a total of nearly $1 million per year to individual artists through the twelve fellowship programs. The foundation delegates management of the fellowships to arts organizations that tailor programs to the unique challenges of different creative disciplines (ceramic artists, choreographers, composers, dancers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, play- wrights, screenwriters, theater artists, visual artists, and writers).
