CAA News Today

CAA encourages schools, departments, museums, libraries, and art institutions to place a salutatory announcement in the Centennial Booklet, which will be distributed at Convocation, taking place on Wednesday, February 9, 5:30–7:00 PM, during the 2011 Annual Conference. Held in the East Ballroom at the Hilton New York, Convocation is free and open to the public.

The Centennial Booklet will contain the list of speakers for Convocation, which include Jim Leach, chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Kate Levin, commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The publication will also include a short profile of the Convocation speakers, the visionary ecoartists Newton and Helen Mayer Harrison, and citations for the recipients of the special Centennial Awards, which recognize a handful of distinguished leaders who have vigorously and tirelessly supported the visual arts for many years (names to be announced soon). CAA will also present a Centennial Statement and acknowledge the many donors who have supported the organization this year.

Contributors have three options for their announcements: quarter, half, and full pages; the affordable prices are $250, $400, and $750 respectively. Please download the Centennial Booklet advertising form for full details. For more information on helping celebrate CAA’s past, present, and future, please contact Sara Hines, CAA development and marketing manager, at 212-691-1051, ext. 216. Deadline: January 3, 2011.
