The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry from museum and university presses for publishing projects that offer significant original scholarship in the fields of digital and electronic art, art of the Spanish Americas, post-war painting and sculpture, Japanese bamboo, and arts and culture of the American Southwest. At the core of the Publication Grants Program is a deep commitment to advancing scholarship and providing broad and equitable dissemination of knowledge and ideas.
Publication Grants are intended to assist with production-related expenses. Eligible costs include author’s fees, editing, image rights and permissions, photography, design, printing, and translation.
Museums and university presses are eligible to apply. Individual authors with completed manuscripts in applicable fields should mention the availability of Thoma Art Foundation Publication Grants when they submit their manuscript to a university press for consideration.
