CAA Publishing Grants

Millard Meiss Publication Fund

Cécile Whiting Pop L.A.

The University of California Press received a Meiss grant in fall 2004 to help publish Cécile Whiting’s book, Pop L.A.: Art and the City in the 1960s (2006)

From the Millard Meiss Publication Fund, CAA awards grants twice a year to support the publication of book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of 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.

Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant

Thanks to a generous grant from the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grant supports book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that are under contract with a publisher. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art (circa 1500–1980) of what is now the geographic United States.

Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant

Thanks to a generous grant from the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant supports 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. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded two grants to CAA to fund the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award in 2013 and 2015. CAA provided funds to authors who are publishing monographs on the history of art and related subjects. The purpose of the subventions was to reduce the financial burden that authors carry when acquiring images for publication, including licensing and reproduction fees for both print and online publications.

A similar award (SAH-Mellon Author Awards) for scholars who are publishing their first monograph on the history of the built environment is administered by the Society for Architectural Historians (SAH). For more information, please contact Beth Eifrig, SAH assistant director of programs, at beifrig@sah.org or 312-573-1365. Both the CAA and SAH awards provide leading authors with the financial resources to acquire images for scholarly publications.
