"The Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), on behalf of the McKnight Foundation, announces the six recipients of the 2022 McKnight Fellowships for Visual Artists: Ruthann Godollei, Pao Houa Her, Amanda Lovelee, Lamar Peterson, Emmett Ramstad, and Jonathan Thunder. Designed to identify and support mid-career Minnesota artists, the McKnight Fellowships for Visual Artists provide recipients with $25,000 stipends, public recognition, professional encouragement from national visiting critics, an opportunity to participate in a speaker series, and a 1-2 week residency facilitated by the Artist Communities Alliance (ACA). The fellowships are funded by a grant from the McKnight Foundation and administered by MCAD.

The 2022 McKnight fellows were selected from a group of 141 applicants by a national panel of arts professionals. This year’s jurors were Jongwoo Jeremy Kim, Associate Professor of Art History and Theory, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh; Julio César Morales, artist and Curator of Visual Arts at Arizona State University Art Museum, Tempe; and Katie Pfohl, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, New Orleans Museum of Art."
