Announcement Marzio Award

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and its research institute for Latin American Art, the International Center for the Arts of the Americas (ICAA), have announced the establishment of The ICAA Peter C. Marzio Award for Oustanding Research in 20th Century Latin American and Latino Art.

The award is named for the late, long-time director of the MFAH, who founded the ICAA in 2001. It will recognize 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, 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 award was announced in Houston with the launch of the first phase of the digital archive and preview of its companion book series at the MFAH on Thursday, January 19.

The inaugural year award is generously underwritten by The Transart Foundation for Art and Anthropology, a private, non-profit organization based in Houston, supporting the creative process of contemporary artists and scholars, who integrate advanced and relevant social, anthropological or cultural research in their work.
