This is Gregory. He is an Art Librarian at a prominent museum. But he has a secret that he tries to hide from his colleagues. He is addicted to purchasing ARLIS/NA merchandise from the CafePress store. He says he can stop at any time and that the profits go to a good cause*, but he is kidding himself. He fantasizes about even more objects with an ARLIS/NA logo. Please help Gregory and others like him by purchasing ARLIS/NA merch so that he can stop.
*Proceeds from the sale of ARLIS/NA merchandise sold through the ARLIS/NA Mid-Atlantic Chapter’s CafePress store will be used to support the third joint ARLIS/NA+VRA conference in Seattle and the Chapter’s Caroline Backlund Travel Award.
Register now for Shifting Terrain: Mapping a Transnational American Art History at the Smithsonian American Art Museum on October 16–17, 2015!
The increasing internationalization of the study of American art has altered the topography of the discipline in ways that are widely acknowledged but not yet clearly defined. This two-day event will map out the changes that are occurring in the field of American art as it becomes enmeshed in a global art history. Sessions will examine current trends of inquiry and suggest new directions for scholarship. Shifting Terrain is the capstone event in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s five-part series The Terra Symposia on American Art in a Global Context, initiated in 2006 with support from the Terra Foundation for American Art.
