Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors

The Detroit Society of Women Painters and Sculptors is one of the oldest self-sustaining women's art organizations in the United States, having been founded by Lillian Burk Meeser on February 23, 1903. Its mission since inception has been to quicken interest in art movements of the day, to stimulate high achievement, active work, and mutual helpfulness among members, and to provide encouragement and support for art students. It achieves these ends by holding juried exhibitions of its members' work, sponsoring interesting and informative programs, and awarding an annual scholarship to a qualified woman student attending art classes in an accredited college.

The DSWPS welcomes new members who are interested in the promotion of art and wish to participate in the society's activities. Click here to download a membership form. To see lists of our members and officers, please click here. You
