Our national organization was originally founded in Washington, D.C. in 1944 by Mollie Davis Nicholson and Francesca Falk Nielsen to recognize and promote promising young talent in the arts. It now has 17 chapters across the United States.
The organization has had a distinguished history, providing well over $3,500,000 in awards at the national and chapter levels. The importance and quality of our mission and activities is endorsed by the stellar list of prominent present and past luminaries in the arts who have served on the NSAL National Honors Council. Wives of the most recent seven sitting Presidents of the United States have been Honorary Members.
