The 20/20 Artist Fellowship is an unrestricted $15,000 award, plus a $5,000 professional development stipend given individually to three (3) BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and Native artists who are creating tools, pathways, and systems of support for artists in their communities. Artists from all Minnesota geographies are encouraged to apply.
