IFAR Journal Wins First Prize Again in 2011

June 2011

IFAR -- the International Foundation for Art Research -- is very proud to announce that its signature publication, the quarterly IFAR Journal, has won First Prize again 2011 in the American Association of Museums' Publications Contest.  This is the sixth award that the Journal has won in this prestigious national contest and the fourth time (and third consecutive year) that the Journal has won First Prize.

Thanks and congratulations go to IFAR Journal Designer: Ana Lucia Rosales-Boujnah; Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Sharon Flescher; and Editor, Kathleen Ferguson. A special thank you also to all the contributing writers and to the funders, who have believed in IFAR and this publication. Without them, the Journal would not be possible. We would like especially to acknowlege this year's Journal funders: The National Endowment for the Arts, The Liman Foundation, the Dedalus Foundation, the International Music and Art Foundation, and the Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation.

IFAR has been publishing a periodical since 1979. The IFAR Journal, launched in 1998, replaced our previous publication, IFARreports, and is an integral component of IFAR's educational mission. It is a lively, yet substantive compendium of feature articles, book reviews, and news stories in IFAR's primary areas of interest -- provenance, attribution/ authenticity, law, and other scholarly, legal and ethical issues concerning art objects. IFAR Journal  goes to subscribers in 19 countries, is frequently cited, and articles are incorporated in the curricula of numerous universities. Each publication includes the unique Stolen Art Alert, published by IFAR since 1977.
