Heid E. Erdrich and Jennifer Phelps selected these 25 artists out of over 200 applicants this year. And we appreciate the quality of the submissions and the thoughtful diligence of these two jurors.

A long-time college professor, Heid is now an independent scholar and a frequent visiting writer at educational and cultural institutions across the country. In Minnesota, Heid often works with galleries to present exhibits focused on Native American visual art and she directs Wiigwaas Press an Ojibwe language publisher.
Jennifer Phelps is the Director of the Burnet Gallery, a commercial gallery located inside the Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis art hotel. Phelps is also responsible for overseeing the Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis hotel art collection, which encompasses some 250 different art pieces, including video art and several pieces by YBA (Young British Artists) artists, such as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
