Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant
Thanks to a generous grant from the Wyeth Foundation for American Art, the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant supports 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 be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy. For this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.Learn More

From 2015 to 2022, the Terra Foundation for American Art supported books, including translations, from publishers both domestic and international through the Terra Foundation for American Art Publication Grants.
The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded two grants to CAA to fund the Meiss/Mellon Author’s Book Award in 2013 and 2015. CAA provided funds to authors who are publishing monographs on the history of art and related subjects. The purpose of the subventions was to reduce the financial burden that authors carry when acquiring images for publication, including licensing and reproduction fees for both print and online publications.
A similar award (SAH-Mellon Author Awards) for scholars who are publishing their first monograph on the history of the built environment is administered by the Society for Architectural Historians (SAH). For more information, please contact Beth Eifrig, SAH assistant director of programs, at email@example.com or 312-573-1365. Both the CAA and SAH awards provide leading authors with the financial resources to acquire images for scholarly publications.
