Last Day to Participate in IAS’ Thirtieth Anniversary Campaign!
2017 will mark the Italian Art Society’s thirtieth anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, we launched both a membership and fundraising campaign in September that comes to its culmination today, 31 December! It’s not too late: join, renew, or contribute today! In the spirit of our campaign, here are three questions to ask yourself:
1.) Is my membership current? All current memberships expire on December 31, so if you haven’t done so already, please renew your membership and encourage non-members (colleagues, friends, aficionados) working on or appreciative of Italian art, architecture, and visual culture acrossculture across all media, periods, and career paths to join the IAS.
2.) Can I help a field colleague with membership fees? Based on the model of the Italian caffè sospeso, we now offer the option to sponsor another individual’s membership. Given the number of graduate students, emerging scholars, contingent faculty, and independent scholars with whom we share a field, we thought this would be an excellent way for many of us to “pay it forward” and offer membership to those whom it might benefit most.
3.) How else can I contribute to IAS? IAS would like to celebrate its three decades with a fundraising campaign that will support both the growth and longevity of the organization. Given IAS’ impending landmark of 30 years, IAS is asking members to consider donations in permutations of 3 and/or 30. Whether that means a donation of $3 or $300, be certain that any donation goes far in supporting IAS’s mission, programs, fellowships, charitable activities, and publications.
Founded in 1987, the Italian Art Society is dedicated to the study of Italian art and architecture from prehistory to the present and offers a variety of programs in addition to the IASblog, which brings news of all things Italian to its readers on a daily basis (thank you for following us!).
Membership options begin at $20.00 for graduate students and include three other membership levels (regular, $30.00; patron, $60.00, and institution/benefactor, $100.00). You may check our list of current members on our website.
If you are wondering about other ways to support us, IAS always welcomes contributions and we are also happy to work with donors to direct contributions toward specific purposes, including travel grant support and/or the establishment of research and/or publication funds. If you would like to donate while also purchasing a book on your favorite Italian artist, architect, or city, please shop via our Amazon Affiliates page, where a percentage of every purchase you make comes back to the IAS.
Join or renew today and help us wrap up successful IAS Thirtieth Anniversary Membership and Fundraising Campaign!
