Institutional membership represents a significant engagement with current scholarship, theory, criticism, education, and practice in the visual arts. Join today and connect to CAA’s vital international community of not only artists, scholars, curators, and educators, but also museums, libraries, departments of art and art history at colleges and universities, publishers, and other professional and commercial organizations.
A redesigned membership plan, the next step in our strategic repositioning, will provide tailored member services depending upon the chosen level of engagement. The plan was presented at our Town Hall meetings on February 18 and March 5, and will go into effect July 1. We’ve created an FAQ page that we will continue to update regularly with information about this transition, and we expect to provide you with regular communications in various formats.
