Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAViC)

Established in 2005, the Center for Historic American Visual Culture (CHAViC) at the American Antiquarian Society (AAS) provides opportunities for educators to learn about American visual culture and resources, promotes the awareness of AAS collections, and stimulates research and intellectual inquiry into American visual materials. CHAViC accomplishes these goals by offering fellowships, exhibitions, workshops and seminars, conferences, resources, and improved access to AAS collections. CHAViC was a major supporter for the Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere exhibition and the 2020 symposium Revere in Perspective.

AAS has rich collections of visual materials including maps, prints, photography, illustrated books and serials, and ephemera.
