Since 1917 the Concord Art Association has been a center for the arts in Concord, Massachusetts. Founded by the American impressionist painter, Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts, the association moved to the circa 1750 Jonathan Ball House purchased by Miss Roberts in 1922. There, Daniel Chester French, renowned for the Minuteman statue at the old North Bridge in Concord and the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was elected the first president and a skylighted gallery was installed on the second floor of the colonial house at 37 Lexington Road. Under the leadership of these two Concord artists the association flourished in the 1920s with paintings and sculpture exhibited by Monet, Hassam, Henri, Cassatt, Sargent, Beaux, Benson, Dewing, Hoffman, Grafly, Davies, Bellows, Fechin and many others.
