The Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati is the oldest existing women's art club operating without interruption in the United States. Founded December 10, 1892 by nineteen women artists in response to the Cincinnati Art Club's reluctance to include women, the Woman's Art Club continues its tradition of stimulating its members to greater effort in their work and increasing a general interest in art.
