About The Outdoor Art Club

The Outdoor Art Club is a private, nonprofit women's organization which was formed in 1902. Our mission is "To preserve the natural scenery of Mill Valley and the surrounding country, to beautify the grounds around public buildings, to work against the wanton destruction of birds and game, to encourage the development of outdoor art and to engage in other civic, literary and charitable work."
The clubhouse is available for rental by the public. See Rental page.

The Penalty for Success:
One Family's Story of a Lynching

Josephine Bolling McCall was five years old when her father was lynched in 1947 outside Montgomery, Alabama. Elmore Bolling had fought rampant discrimination in the Jim Crow South to build several successful businesses, making him wealthier than many of his white neighbors. This, his family believes, is why he was lynched. In his daughter’s self-published book, The Penalty for Success, she challenges us to reconsider lynching as a means by which whites eliminated competition from black business owners as part of a pattern of racist violence that terrorized African Americans for generations
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
