Century association

DEFINITION

An elite New York City private club established in 1847, its members included painters, sculptors, authors, architects, and other persons with deep interest in letters and the fine arts. Among the members were John Bunyan Bristol, Gifford Beal, Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer, and Theodore Wores. The Association grew out of the Sketch Club, which had been founded by William Cullen Bryant and friends in 1829. The Century Association was located at 46 East 8th Street in Greenwich Village from 1852 to 1857, and since 1891, at 7 West 43st Street in a club house designed by Stanford White. The Association has an art collection, and an ongoing tradition of exhibitions by its members. In 1989, after a tremendous "row", the club began admitting women members.
