Through our publication grants, the Terra Foundation for American Art provides support for publication projects on historical American art (circa 1500 to 1980) that make a significant contribution to scholarship and have an international dimension. “International dimensions” vary by project, but include translations of important texts on American art; publications that are written by non-U.S. scholars or that have a significant number of non-U.S. contributors; and publications with a focused thesis exploring American art in an international context. The grants are designed to advance and internationalize scholarship on American art and provide individuals outside the United States with greater access to resources in the field. Applications will be judged competitively on an annual basis.

Deadline

 Submissions are due January 15, 2013, and awards will be announced in May 2013. Applicants are highly encouraged to contact TFAA (publications@terraamericanart.eu) in advance of the deadline to confirm eligibility and discuss the project.

Translations or reprints of exhibition catalogues originally published prior to 2005 will be considered if they contain substantial scholarship.

Awarded grants and distribution of funds

  • TFAA preference is to contribute toward the image rights and translation costs for a publication, though other production costs may be requested.
  • TFAA funding will not cover the entire budget for a publication.
  • Awarded grants will be announced annually each spring; monies will be disbursed when the project is in a closing stage of production (final galley proofs or the equivalent).
