Terra Foundation for American Art International Essay Prize
CHICAGO, IL.- The Terra Foundation for American Art International Essay Prize recognizes excellent scholarship by a non-U.S. scholar in the field of historical American art (circa 1500—1980). The winning essay submission should advance understanding of American art and demonstrate new findings and original perspectives. It will be translated and published in American Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s scholarly journal, which will also cover the cost of image rights and reproductions, and the winner will receive a $500 award. This prize is made possible by the Terra Foundation for American Art.

The aim of the award is to stimulate and actively support non-U.S. scholars working on American art, foster international exchange of new ideas and create a broad, culturally comparative dialogue on American art. To be eligible, essays should focus on historical American painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, decorative arts, photography or visual culture of the same period. Preference will be given to studies that address American art within a cross-cultural context as well as new ways of thinking about American art. Manuscripts previously published in a foreign language are eligible if released within the last two years. For scholars from English-language countries, only unpublished manuscripts will be considered. Authors of eligible essays are invited to submit their own work for consideration. We urge scholars who know of eligible articles written by others to inform those authors of the prize.

The length of the essay (including endnotes) shall not exceed 8,000 words with approximately 12 illustrations. Manuscripts submitted in foreign languages should be accompanied by a detailed abstract in English. Six copies of the essay, clearly labelled “2010 Terra Foundation for American Art International Essay Prize,” along with the scholar’s name, mailing address, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and fax number must be received by January 15, 2010, at the following address:

American Art journal
Research and Scholars Center
Smithsonian American Art Museum
Box 37012, MRC 970
Washington D.C. 20013-7012

Announcement of the winning essay is expected to be made by May 2010. For more information, please www.americanart.si.edu/research/awards/terra/.
