MCKnight Fellowships for Media Artists

APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN UNTIL MARCH 11

2019/20 Application Guidelines
DEADLINE IS MARCH 11, 2019 AT 5PM
  GUIDELINES FAQ

The McKnight Foundation’s Arts program is one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the country. Established in 1981, the McKnight Artist Fellowships provide annual, unrestricted cash awards to outstanding mid-career Minnesota artists in ten areas. Eight arts organizations oversee the administration of the fellowships and structure their own programs to respond to the unique challenges of different creative disciplines.

The McKnight Arts program supports the conviction 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.

The goal of the McKnight Artist Fellowships for Media Artists program is to identify talented Minnesota media artists whose work is of exceptional artistic merit and who are at a career stage beyond emerging. The fellowship program supports established artists by providing significant financial assistance, by creating opportunities to meet with local and national art professionals, by organizing a public discussion panel featuring the fellows, by providing assistance to attend a professional conference in New York or Los Angeles, and by offering four free classes through FilmNorth during the fellowship year.

For questions about the fellowships or the application process, contact Eric Mueller, Program Administrator, FilmNorth, 651-644-1912, emueller@myfilmnorth.org.

Princeton Arts Fellowships

Princeton Arts Fellowships, funded in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be awarded to artists whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of artistic practice and teaching. Applicants should be early career composers, visual artists, conductors, musicians, choreographers, filmmakers, performers, directors or performance artists—this list is not meant to be exhaustive—who would find it beneficial to spend two years working in an artistically vibrant university community.

Princeton Arts Fellows spend two consecutive academic years (September 1–July 1) at Princeton University, and formal teaching is expected. The normal work assignment will be to teach one course each semester subject to approval by the Dean of the Faculty, but fellows may be asked to take on an artistic assignment in lieu of a class, such as directing a play or creating a dance with students. Although the teaching load is light, our expectation is that Fellows will be full and active members of our community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Minnesota Monthly

The January 2015 issue of Minnesota Monthly featured the article, “Ones to Watch: New work from up-and-coming Minnesota Artists,” which spotlighted the art of seven artists under 30 years of age in a variety of mediums. For the January 2016 issue, we will run a feature on the state’s best art of the year spotlighting new works created in the past year by working Minnesota artists of any age in an array of mediums, with full-color space dedicated to their art and brief biographies of each individual.

Deadline: 09-18-2015

The New York Mills Arts Retreat residency program is now accepting applications. The deadline is April 1 for residencies from July – December and October 1 for residencies from January – June.  Access the application form under the menu item “Arts Retreat Application” or by clicking this link.

Artists from all disciplines (performance, written, audio and visual media) will be considered for a residency. The selection committee awards residencies to artists based on artistic merit and commitment to the arts.

There is just one artist at a time here on residency, which supports our focus on providing virtually uninterrupted time for creative development and exploration.  We provide stays of two to six weeks for artists at NO COST for room (solo occupancy of a one-bedroom house and access to studio space in our Cultural Center). Each artist provides her or his own transportation and board. There is no stipend.
