Italian Art Society College Art Association Virtual Reception     
Friday, February 25, 2022     
6:00 pm EST/ 3:00 pm PST     


The Italian Art Society would like to invite all of its members and any prospective members to a virtual reception on Friday, February 25th at 6:00 pm EST. Attendance at CAA is not required to participate in our reception! Come meet the newest officers, catch up with old friends, and make new connections within our scholarly community.    

As we continue to promote equity opportunities for our members and foster stronger bonds within our community, the virtual reception will be used as a platform to help support funds for the Sospeso memberships. Rooted in the Neapolitan tradition of a caffè sospeso, our Sospeso memberships are an opportunity to support our community by offering one-year gift memberships to scholars wishing to join our community, who may not have the financial means at this time.      

To fund these Sospesi, we are encouraging our members to make a minimum $5 donation (or whatever amount is possible). All donations will go directly to these gift memberships and can be considered tax-deductible. Donations towards the Sospesi can be made here:  

If anyone would like to be considered for a Sospeso membership, please contact our Co-Chair of the Membership, Outreach, and Development Committee, Katie Brown (     

To register for the virtual reception, send an email to our Events Coordinator, Tiffany Hunt ( A confirmation email with the Zoom link will follow.       

We hope you will join us in this initiative and enjoy an evening/afternoon of collegiality!
