Art Association of the University of California.
The object of the Art Association is to realize a higher culture among the students of the University of California by contact and familiarity with the classical and ideal in painting, sculpture, music, and poetry.
The status of membership is active and associate. The active members are registered women students of the University. A Board of Directors chosen from these carries on the work of the organization, which consists of providing four entertainments each semester. The associate members are those interested in the advancement of art. The associate members are subject to the payment of dues, which are $1.50 a year. The payment of these dues is the only burden imposed upon the associate members. turn each receives a ticket for every entertainment during one year, the total expense of which would be four dollars by single admission. Beside this material advantage associate members have the satisfaction of knowing that they are assisting in a most worthy object - that of bringing to the students the refining influence of music, literature, and art. The Board of Directors are as follows: Miss Eva Powell, President, Miss Abby Waterman. Corresponding 921 Myrtle Street, Okland.
