Art League Houston is one of the oldest nonprofit visual arts organizations in the city. During the 1930's, the artists of Houston met informally as the Associated Artists for the purposes of exhibiting their work and sharing activities of mutual interest. In 1948, several members of the group reorganized as the Art League of Houston and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1953. Art League Houston strives to open its programs and facilities to not just its membership but to all of those interested in the visual arts forms of the diverse cultural communities of Houston. With its ambitious programs of exhibitions, classes, workshops, outreach endeavors, lectures, and through the talents and efforts of its volunteers, patrons and community support, ALH has become an important community resource. It is the mission of Art League Houston to encourage and support the visual arts in Houston through exhibition, education and outreach.
