About

For nearly a century the Arts Club of Washington has promoted and celebrated the visual, performing, and literary arts in the nation’s capital. Gatherings for members, exhibits and performances for the public, and a range of private events are held in the club’s historic I Street mansion, which was formerly the home of President James Monroe. Arts Club members come from a wide range of artistic disciplines and professional backgrounds, joined by their shared enjoyment and appreciation of the arts.

We welcome you to explore this web site to learn more about the club, its wide-ranging programs, and its rich history. Better yet, visit the Monroe House to view our galleries, attend one of our free public events, and tour our home. Consider hosting an event at the club—or becoming a member yourself!
