Various clues in the Jean Hart portfolio indicate that she was a member of Chicago’s “Three Arts Club” in the 1930s. Started in 1912, the Club was chartered to "provide a home and a club for young women engaged in the practice or study of the arts in the city of Chicago." The founding Board of Directors, a group of 32 women who were active in Chicago’s social reform movement, educational causes, and the arts, created a charter to “provide and manage a home and a club in the City of Chicago for young women engaged in the study of music, painting, and drama.” These women, whose surnames are forever etched in the history of Chicago, worked to support the creative and professional growth of women artists in a nurturing residential environment. Over many decades, more than 12,000 residents have benefited from this vision.
