Name: Art Association of New Orleans.
Historical Note: The Art Association of New Orleans was founded in 1900 for the purposes of promoting the fine arts, "aesthetic culture," the establishment of a library of art literature, and the promotion and encouragement of education in the fine arts. The organization was initially called the Arts Exhibition Club, but was changed to the Art Association of New Orleans in 1903. In the first years of the Art Association, the society aimed to give one exhibition per year. By 1929, the Art Association was holding fourteen exhibitions annually. The organization was closely allied with the Isaac Delgado Museum for many years, where exhibitions were shown until the late 1960s.
