He has received commissions for site-specific installations in parks and public spaces in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Texas; his work is also included in numerous private and public collections, including the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. In recognition of his influence and accomplishments as an artist, educator, and community arts advocate, Kinji received in 2OO7 the McKnight Foundation Distinguished Artist Award.
