College Art Association Awards Seven Terra Foundation for American Art International Publication Grants

NEW YORK—The College Art Association, in partnership with the Terra Foundation for American Art, has awarded seven international publication grants to support authors in book-length studies of the history of American art. Since 2012, the grant has awarded up to $15,000 to publishers in the United States considering the relationship between American art and international contemporaries, non-US publishers producing manuscripts on American art, and translators of texts on American art to or from English. The award defines “American art” as art made from 1500–1980 in what is now the geographic United States.
