An organization actively promoting the study of italian art is the Italian Art Society (IAS), a scholarly group with members from several universities in the US and Europe. Launched in 1986 in Kalamazoo (!), the Society is now affiliated with the College Art association, the Renaissance Society of America, the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference, and the Society of Architectural Historians.

The IAS organizes lectures and conferences on Italian art, publishes newsletter three times a year, and awards travel grants to scholars in the pursuit of their studies. They also offer assistance in obtaining outside funding for Italian art and art history studies. Their membership includes established professors and researchers in the field, undergraduate and graduate students, and people who are simply passionate about the subject.

Some IAS upcoming events are:

IAS/KRESS LECTURES, to be held in the spring of 2012 in Venice, Italy
RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND MATHEMATICS
Milan, Italy, June 11–14, 2012,
ATTENDING TO EARLY MODERN WOMEN: REMAPPING ROUTES AND SPACES
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, June 21–23, 2012.
