Artist Society is a club where all visual artists at Columbia can meet, relax, and create.
Undergraduate students founded the club in January 2006 to answer the call of many university affiliates who wanted focused studio time but could not fit visual arts classes into their schedules. Our unofficial membership currently comprises over 200 Columbia employees and students both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Thanks to the Activities Board at Columbia and Gatsby Charitable Foundation grants, all our events remain free of charge. We provide snacks and lend out art supplies at most events.
