The Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts is Division 10 of the American Psychological Association.

From the APA website:

"Society for the Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity and the Arts is committed to interdisciplinary scholarship, both theoretical and empirical, encompassing the visual arts, poetry, literature, music, and dance. Broadly conceived, we study three interrelated topics: creativity (including developmental, motivational, affective, and cognitive processes), the arts (including aesthetic content, form, and function), and audience response to the arts (including preferences and judgments). To this end, we apply personality, clinical, cognitive, perceptual, cultural, and postmodern psychologies to diverse artists, styles, and epochs. Division 10 offers a biannual publication; three annual awards, the Berlyne, Arnheim, and Farnsworth Awards; and discounts on five specialized journals." [1]

The society's official journal is Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts.
