The ICAA is proud to invite undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in universities in the US and abroad to apply for the 2017 edition of the Peter C. Marzio Award for Outstanding Research in 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art. Named for the late, longtime director of the MFAH, who founded the ICAA in 2001, the award recognizes new scholarship in the field of 20th-century Latin American and Latino art. A prize of $2,500 will be granted to a graduate student, and $1,000 to an undergraduate student (or honorable mention), who each produce outstanding academic papers based on the newly published primary-source materials available from the digital archive Documents of 20th-century Latin American and Latino Art and its companion book series, Critical Documents of 20th-Century Latin American and Latino Art. The prize is generously underwritten by the Transart Foundation of Houston. For the official call for participation, please see the ICAA Peter C. Marzio Award page.
