For ten years artists and writers gathered at 1718 Holly Street, on the bluffs that looked over the West Bottom financial district of Kansas City, its railroad hub and stockyards. A patron of the arts, Gertrude Woolf supported the 1896 Paint Club, under George Van Millet, served as a trustee of the Kansas City Art Institute, and was a donor of the Nelson-Atkins Museum. The Lighton Studio she founded helped women artists promote their art.
