The Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club is one of the oldest women's art clubs in the country and was founded in 1896 in honor of Miss Wolfe, a prominent New York philanthropist and an avid art collector. She was the only woman among the 106 founders of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Club's home base, where monthly meetings are held, is the historic Grace Church on Broadway in New York City. The club's original function was to provide aid and counsel to women art students who find life in New York a struggle. In the 1950's the club's focus was shifted to serving women artists of professional standing throughout the United States. The club now organizes exhibitions, lectures, scholarships, and other art related activities. Today's members are represented in museums, galleries, and prestigious art collections all over the world.
