Ross Barrett Rendering Violence

The University of California Press received a Wyeth grant in 2013 to help publish Ross Barrett’s book Rendering Violence (2014)

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 bpereze published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. The deadline for the receipt of applications is September 15 of each year.
