The Museum Committee provides a bridge between scholars and arts professionals in the academic and museum fields. It offers a forum for the discussion of issues of mutual interest and promotes museum advocacy issues within CAA. The committee lends support and mentorship for both seasoned and emerging professionals to protect and interpret the arts within museums.
In spring 2021, the Museum Committee surveyed CAA membership to assess how the committee can best serve their interests. See the results here. The Museum Committee also advocates for museums and collaborates with two CAA affiliated societies, the Association of Art Museum Curators and the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries, when needed.
