Individual Membership

Join the largest international visual-arts association today and connect to CAA’s vital community of artists, scholars, and other professionals in the visual arts. For over a century, CAA has served the interests of its members and the field at large. CAA members are part of an exclusive network that provides access to targeted career services, the latest art-world news, and the best original writing on art, research in art history, and critical reviews. When you attend CAA’s Annual Conference, you have the opportunity to expand your professional network, participate in compelling sessions covering the full range of art history and visual culture, and hone your skills in professional-development workshops, mentoring sessions, and portfolio reviews.

For an individual member who plans on attending the Annual Conference and isn’t eligible for a discounted tier of membership, the best value is the Premium Membership. The Premium level provides a 55% discounted conference registration rate, resulting in a greater overall value.

Questions? Contact Member Services at 212-691-1051, ext. 1.
