The Sotheby's Institute of Art Research Award subcommittee of the Art Libraries Society of North America (ARLIS/NA) welcomes nominations by its members to recognize excellence in a student paper or digital art history project on a topic relevant to collecting or the art market.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art in partnership with ARLIS/NA is implementing a National Digital Stewardship Residency (NDSR) program for art information professionals through generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) via a 2016 Laura Bush 21st-Century Librarian Program grant.
The 2016 Melva J. Dwyer Award winner is 1920s Modernism in Montreal: The Beaver Hall Group, published in 2015 through a partnership of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Black Dog Publishing in both an English and a French edition. The publication was edited by Jacques des Rochers, curator of Canadian and Quebec Art before 1945 at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and Brian Foss, Director of the School for Studies in Art and Culture at Carleton University in Ottawa, to accompany an exhibition of the same name, which they also curated. Contributors include Kristina Huneault, Concordia University, Hélène Sicotte, Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), and Esther Trépanier, UQAM.
