    The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), on behalf of the McKnight Foundation and co-presented by the Minneapolis Institute of Art, is pleased to announce the McKnight Visual Artist Discussion Series, featuring the 2016 McKnight Visual Artist Fellows in conversation with four nationally-renown art curators and critics.  
    ?The McKnight Visual Artist Fellowships program is a highly competitive fellowship that identifies talented Minnesota visual artists whose work is of exceptional artistic merit and who are at a career stage that is 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 McKnight Discussion Series featuring the fellows and invited critics, and by working with the fellows to create an individualized professional development plan.
    The fellowship program spans two years. During the first year, the eight fellows invite six nationally recognized critics into their studios for in depth conversations on their work. In the second year of the program, the fellows ask four critics back to the Twin Cities for a public panel discussion. The discussion series pairs one critic with two McKnight Visual Artist Fellows and offers the audience an opportunity to learn more about the fellowship recipients as well as how their work intersects with broader contemporary art ideas and concerns.
    For more information about the McKnight Visual Artist Discussion Series, please contact Kerry Morgan, director of gallery and exhibition programs at MCAD, at 612.874.3667 or gallery@mcad.edu.
