This clubhouse was built to provide a safe, supportive, and economical residence for young women studying the arts. This was part of a trend to construct buildings for artists at the turn of the century that was indicative of a growing appreciation for the arts in urban life and as a worthwhile educational pursuit. The Byzantine-style entrance contains mosaics representing the three arts of music, drama, and painting. The 110 units were arranged around a central courtyard.
