The journal serves as a venue for the publication of outstanding peer-reviewed and edited content primarily relating to themes of significance to the Midwest Art History Society (MAHS) and its members. Material may take the form of scholarly essays on a chosen art historical theme or national contemporary issue that develops based on the conference’s keynote lecture and/or a group of related sessions, a foundational figure in MAHS’s history, a particular Midwestern art collection, or historiography of art historical scholarship. Although MAHS was originally founded in 1973 as a Midwest organization, its board of directors, membership, and conference participants are drawn from across the country. It is a recognized affiliated society of the College Art Association.
