About the Grant
Since 2005, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art has supported the publication of books on American art through the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant, administered by CAA.
For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. 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. The deadline for the receipt of applications is September 15 of each year.
In fall 2014, CAA awarded publication grants to support four book-length scholarly manuscripts. The grantees 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
