Become a Member

Since 1916, the Arts Club of Washington has brought together people with an active interest in the arts in the historic setting of the landmark James Monroe House.

We welcome prospective members who wish to become part of this congenial and unique Washington organization.

The club’s membership application provides complete information on membership categories and the application process. Sponsorship is not required.

Once an application has been submitted, prospective members are invited to attend a monthly meeting of the Admissions Committee.

This offers an opportunity to learn more about the Arts Club and its activities and to informally meet club members from a variety of disciplines.

The Admissions Committee makes its recommendation of new members to the Board of Governors, which formally votes on candidates at its next monthly meeting.

The complete process usually takes no more than 4 to 6 weeks.
