CAA Salutes Donors in the Acknowledgments Section

posted by Nia Page — Mar 14, 2011

Membership fees cover less than half of CAA’s operating costs; thus voluntary contributions from members significantly help to make possible the wide range of programs and services that the organization offers. In a new website section called Acknowledgments, CAA recognizes the distinguished contributors for each of the following:

  • The Centennial Campaign celebrates CAA’s one hundredth anniversary, a celebratory landmark for any organization but particularly so given the organization’s dynamic influence in shaping the study and practice of the visual arts
  • The Annual Campaign helps CAA maintain affordable membership dues and Annual Conference fees, implement its myriad programs and publications, and serve the international community of professionals in the visual arts
  • The Donors Circle of Patron, Sponsoring, and Sustaining Members includes individuals who contribute to CAA above and beyond their regular dues
  • Life Members are individuals who make one-time payments of $5,000 and remain active CAA members for life
  • The Art Bulletin Publication Fund supports the production of CAA’s preeminent scholarly journal covering all areas and periods of art history
  • The Art Journal Publication Fund supports the production of CAA’s cutting-edge quarterly of contemporary art and ideas
  • The caa.reviews Publication Fund supports the production of CAA’s online journal devoted to critical reviews of books, exhibitions, and projects in all areas and periods of art history and visual studies
  • The Annual Conference Travel Grants help cover expenses for graduate students in art history and studio art, and for international artists and scholars, who attend the CAA Annual Conference

CAA offers additional ways to contribute to the organization. Through Planned Giving, you can include CAA in your will. You can also purchase Benefit Prints by the artists Willie Cole and Buzz Spector or a collection of Art Journal Artists’ Projects by Barbara Bloom, Clifton Meador, Mary Lum, and William Pope.L.
