CAA is pleased to announce four 2014 recipients of the annual Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, established in 2005. Thanks to a generous grant from the Wyeth Foundation, these awards are given annually to publishers to support the publication of one or more book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico through 1970.
The four grantees for 2014 are:
- Bill Anthes, Hock E Aye Vi: Edgar Heap of Birds, Duke University Press
- Susan Cahan, The Politics of Race in American Museums, 1966–1972, Duke University Press
- Miguel de Baca, Memory Work: Anne Truitt and Sculpture, University of California Press
- Elizabeth Milroy, The Grid and the River: Histories of Philadelphia’s Green Places, 1682–1876, Pennsylvania State University Press
Eligible for the grant are book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. Authors must be current CAA members. Please review the application guidelines for more information.
