Wyeth Publication Grant

Call for Applications

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 the purposes of this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico prior to 1970. Eligible for the grant are book-length scholarly manuscipts 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. The deadline for the receipt of applications is October 1 of each year.

Recent Winners
