General Questions

The A.i.A. Guide was first published in 1982, making our most recent issue, our 40th anniversary edition. This also marks our final edition of the print publication. We’re taking the momentum of this milestone to evolve our digital platform. More on that coming soon!

Listing Fields

If you’ve previously listed in the A.i.A. Guide, your description has become the Tagline for your online listing. These Taglines are verified by Art in America to denote that your listing has been reviewed and approved. If Art in America does not approve of your Tagline, we will reach out to the lister in order to amend it.

There is no limit to the amount of artists you can list, but we suggest no more than 30.*

You can upload up to 15 images.

We recommend images around these sizes (all listed are in pixels): 1450 × 1100, 1080 × 608, 1079 × 607, 1080 × 720 and resolution of 72dpi. Important note: images larger than 2500 pixels on any side and/or larger than 50MB will not load into the gallery.

Listers can “embed” videos in the content/text section of their listing. To do this, simply visit your YouTube, Vimeo, or similar video hosting website, upload your video to your account, and copy your embed code. The embed code is usually located near your sharing options. All videos should be set to a width of “540px” in order to fit on the page correctly. You can easily edit this in your embed code where it provides a “width” setting. Make sure to adjust the height proportionally (for YouTube and Vimeo, the height ends up adjusting to “304px”).

Any images you upload to the website will automatically have caption numbers right below them on the right side. You can add image caption text in your listing edit form in the field titled “Image Captions”.
