Biographical / Historical:
In 1961 the D. C. Art Education Association, later known as the D.C. Art Association, was founded by the District of Columbia public school art teachers. In 1969 the organization increased its membership by enlisting the support of individuals, as well as community based organizations, and cultural institutions, such as the Anacostia Neighborhood Museum in an effort to promote, encourage and stimulate interest in both the fine and visual arts. Through the strong and diligent efforts of many, the D.C. Art Association commonly referred to as D.C.A.A., successfully made invaluable contributions to the arts by organizing exhibitions, lectures and panel discussions, which furthered the awareness and appreciation of the fine arts to the community at large. Many lives have been cultivated and rewarded by the D.C. Art Associations efforts to support professional artists and implement public programming in the community. Although the D.C. Art Association was disbanded its contributions were a vital catalyst in bringing enrichment and cultural awareness to the art community in Washington, D.C. By upholding its motto, "Dedicated to Foster and Promote the Visual Arts through Community Involvement," the D. C. Art Association has enhanced the lives of many by exploring the African American presence in the visual arts.
