The American Society of Contemporary Artists is a national not-for-profit exhibiting art organization of professional painters, sculptors, and printmakers. Artists of excellence are carefully selected on merit by a revolving jury of their peers.

Artist-members participate in public lectures, art demonstrations, art education, and the presentation of awards that serve to encourage the development of others within the art community. In keeping with the original mandate of bringing quality art before the general public, the annual Art Student Awards and scholastic event sponsorships are an ongoing work in progress.

Now in its 98th year, ASCA has been acknowledged as one of the oldest such organizations in the City of New York. Through the years its ranks have swelled with eminent artists including Jacob Lawrence, Minna Citron, Nancy Ranson Phillips, Chaim Gross, William Zorach, Adolph Gottlieb and many equally prominent members.

In 2003 ASCA published a full-color book of 60 contemporary members, including a brief historical essay documenting its early years as the Brooklyn Society of Artists. The book, entitled ASCA, is available to the public at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Library of Congress, the New York Public Library and other outstanding archives throughout the country.
