College Art Association announces special NYC grants for annual meeting.

CAA has recently received a grant to assist artists, art historians, and people in related fields in New York City who lost their jobs, studios, income, or were otherwise directly affected financially by the destruction of the World Trade Center. This grant will pay for 75 people to join CAA and travel to our February annual conference, which includes a job fair and is an excellent networking venue for arts professionals.

If you know people who are working and/or living in New York and who might qualify for a grant, please pass this information to them as soon as possible. The application process is not onerous. I am thinking in particular of people who lost museum jobs due to the dramatic loss of income in New York museums this fall. But eligibility is pretty broad.
