The Association Américaine des Beaux-Arts (American Association of Fine Arts, AAFA) is a professional body for artists in the United States. It was founded in 1879 and is headquartered in New York City.

The Association Américaine des Beaux-Arts (AABA) is the oldest and largest professional organization for artists in the United States. The organization was founded in 1879 by a group of artists who wanted to create a supportive network for their colleagues. The AABA now has over 5,000 members and provides them with resources, opportunities, and advocacy on issues affecting the arts community.

The Association’s work is divided into four main areas: artist development, public policy, communication, and research. In terms of artist development, the AABA offers programs and services that help artists to hone their skills, connect with other professionals, and find opportunities to showcase their work. The organization’s public policy work includes advocacy on behalf of artists on issues such as copyright reform, arts education, and funding for the arts. The AABA also communicates with the public about the importance of the arts and conducts research on topics related to the arts.

The Association Américaine des Beaux-Arts is a vital part of the American arts community, and its work helps to ensure that artists have the resources they need to be successful.
