Park ridge art colony


An early 20th century association, it was founded by faculty members of the Art Institute of Chicago in Park Ridge, Illinois. Their objective as stated in "The Chicago Evening Post", July 6, 1912, was to "support the new association, which will expend its energies in public school art, and co-operate with the other clubs, while going its own way in search of culture." Members included Albert and Dulah Evans Krehbiel, James William Pattison, Frederick Richardson, Louis Betts, John Paulding and Walter Marshall Clute.
