Art for Every Home: Associated American Artists, 1934–2000 provides the first comprehensive and critical overview of Associated American Artists (AAA), the commercial enterprise best known as the publisher of prints by Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry, and Grant Wood. This exhibition addresses not only AAA’s storied involvement in popularizing American prints in the 1930s, but also its promotion of American art over six decades. Through dynamic marketing of studio prints, ceramics, and textiles, and associations with corporate advertising agencies, AAA sought to bring “original” American art to every American home via mail delivery.
Art for Every Home: An Illustrated Index of Associated American Artists Prints, Ceramics, and Textile Designs, a companion to this volume, includes three illustrated indices that document AAA releases between 1934 and 1990.
