We invite you to join our collegial international community of scholars by becoming a member of AHAA. Our organization seeks to develop a lively and accessible forum for the exchange of information and ideas on American art and culture.

Founded in 1979, the Association of Historians of American Art (AHAA) fulfills its mission of promoting scholarship on art of the United States from the European encounter with Native peoples to contemporary practice through several means. The organization provides a forum for presenting and advancing new approaches to the subject; for examining problems that confront the field; and for identifying scholarly needs and opportunities to its members. AHAA fulfills these goals through its annual meeting and periodic symposia, along with its e-journal Panorama (inaugural issue, Winter 2015), website, and e-newsletter. AHAA is a membership organization and an affiliated society of the College Art Association (CAA).
