Since 1911, the College Art Association has served the individuals and institutions that make up the world’s largest professional association in the visual arts. Through its journals, standards and guidelines, resources on employment, advocacy, and its forum for exchange of creative and scholarly research at the Annual Conference, CAA supports and enhances the community in the visual arts. Today, I ask that you support all that CAA does with a gift to the Annual Fund.
As an enormously productive year comes to a close, we reflect on some highlights:
- CAA signed a copublishing agreement with Taylor & Francis that brought The Art Bulletin and Art Journal online for the first time
- CAA published Copyright, Permissions and Fair Use among Visual Artists and the Academic and Museum Visual Arts Communities: An Issues Report
- CAA hosted twenty scholars from around the world at the 102nd Annual Conference in Chicago through a Getty-sponsored travel grant program, increasing the organization’s presence globally
- Seven professional-development fellowships were awarded in 2014—two in art history and five in studio art—with awardees each receiving unrestricted grants of $5,000 to help further their careers
- CAA launched an enhanced membership program with new benefits and discounted membership offerings for part-time faculty and independent art historians and artists
Your contribution to the Annual Fund will enable CAA to continue this momentum well into 2015. Voluntary support from CAA members is critical to our collective advancement, and your contribution to the Annual Fund makes this important work possible.
On behalf of the artists, art historians, curators, critics, collectors, educators, and other professionals who make up CAA, I thank you for your dedication. Please give generously!
