Academy of design, National.

An art institution founded in New York City in 1826; originally occupying a building on the corner of Fourth Avenue and Twenty-third Street, which was sold in 1895, and a new structure was begun on Amsterdam Avenue and One Hundred and Ninth Street. The academy conducts schools in various branches of the fine arts, and holds semi-annual exhibitions at which a number of valuable prizes are awarded. The members consist of academicians and associates, each of whom must be an artist of recognized merit. The associates, who are entitled to use the letters A. N.A. after their names, are chosen from the general body of the artists, and the academicians, who may use N. A., are elected from the associates. Approved laymen may become fellows on payment of a fee. The schools are open to both sexes, are free, and open from the first Monday in October in each year till the 1st of June following.
