Description of Program The McKnight Artist Residency for Ceramic Artists program provides 3-month residencies at the Northern Clay Center in Minneapolis to two experienced and exceptional ceramic artists who are NOT from Minnesota. Each resident artist will receive a $6,000 award, studio space provided at no cost, and a glaze and firing allowance. The program is intended to provide these ceramic artists with an opportunity to be in residence for three months at Northern Clay Center, where they can develop their own work and, at the same time, exchange ideas and knowledge with Minnesota ceramic artists.
Conditions/Public Service Requirements During the residency, each artist will present a public workshop, for which he or she will receive a small honorarium. At the culmination of the grant period, recipients will be featured in a catalogue and group exhibition at Northern Clay Center.
