Book Signings for The Eye, the Hand, the Mind at the CAA Conference

posted by Christopher Howard — Feb 02, 2011

Attendees of the 99th Annual Conference and Centennial Kickoff will have three opportunities to meet Susan Ball, CAA executive director emerita, as well as many of the fifteen contributors to The Eye, the Hand, the Mind: 100 Years of the College Art Association, the newly published book that surveys the impressive history of the organization from 1911 to the present.

After Convocation, Ball and others will sign copies of the book at a table in the foyer outside the East Ballroom, 3rd Floor, Hilton New York. This year’s Convocation, which takes place on Wednesday, February 9, 5:30–7:00 PM, features a keynote address by the pioneering eco-artists Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison that you will not want to miss.

In the Book and Trade Fair, Rutgers University Press will host two author signings on Thursday and Friday afternoons, at a time to be announced. CAA encourages you to stop by the press’s booth (#604) near the front entrance of the Americas I Ballroom and say hello to Ball and the other authors.

The impressive 330-page book, published by CAA and Rutgers University Press, celebrates the beginning of CAA’s Centennial year. In honor of this milestone, Rutgers will offer a 50 percent discount on any other press title that is purchased during the conference when you buy a copy of The Eye, The Hand, The Mind at the booth.
