United Scenic Artists of America


United Scenic Artists of America
   Founded on 20 September 1912, this organization of United States scene designers and artists eclipsed an earlier organization, the Protective Alliance of Scenic Painters of America, which had been founded on 11 September 1885 by Harley Merry and Richard Marston. The USAA, whose membership also included costume and lighting designers, worked for better working conditions and pay. In 1918, the USAA affiliated with the Brotherhood of Painters, Decorators and Paper-hangers of America.
