Ivy Singles September 2018

IVY SINGLES SEPTEMBER EVENT - THE ARTS CLUB OF WASHINGTON

The Cornell Club of Washington is pleased to host the Ivy Singles Happy Hour Fall Kick-Off!

We invite you to join us at this charming historic landmark, the James Monroe House, just off Pennsylvania Avenue. 

When Timothy Caldwell, a wealthy businessman from Philadelphia, decided in 1806 to build “the handsomest house in the Capital City,” little did he dream that it would one day serve as home for President James Monroe, ambassadors foreign and domestic, the nation’s first weatherman, and the city’s oldest club devoted to the arts.

Inspired by London’s Chelsea Arts Club and the National Arts Club in Manhattan, Washington artists created their own club in May 1916 and purchased the Monroe House as its home. With a focus on painting, sculpture, music, and drama, the Arts Club provided a contrast to Washington’s more traditional clubs. It was also the first club in the city to admit women as charter members.
