Professor Davor Džalto awarded grant from the Getty Foundation
Professor Davor Džalto is one of only fifteen art historians to have been awarded a grant from the Getty Foundation to attend the CAA’s annual conference in New York. The goal of the grant is to increase international participation in CAA, to diversify the organization’s membership, and to foster collaborations between American art historians, artists, and curators and their international colleagues. A number of fascinating collaborations have developed among the alumni, several of which are described in the inaugural stories posted on CAA’s International Desk.
