A Message From the Director:
Greetings To All of our SAMA friends, sponsors, donors, board members, visitors, and our wonderful communities of Loretto, Ligonier, Johnstown, Altoona and Bedford. We appreciate your interest in SAMA, and we value your continued support during a challenging time for everyone. As you scroll through our website, take time to review the stories and images which reflect what SAMA does on a daily basis. Even though we are not at the museums, we continue to plan programming for the future in all areas of operations. You can access some fun and entertaining live feed streaming programs for children and adults from the Bedford area during the week. There will also be a virtual tour of the Bedford Museum coming shortly to immerse yourself and family in wonderful paintings and sculptures from our education collection.
Interruptions such as Coronavirus, our business partners closing their establishments and restrictions on travel challenge us all. Take some time and the opportunity to virtually "get out" and experience some fun activities and the "spaces" SAMA has to offer. Keep coming back to view the offerings online, and don't forget to click that "donate" to SAMA button, it enables us to maintain the rich resource we cherish in Southwestern Central rural PA. Your support matters, especially at this time. All the best,
Sarah E. Henrich
Director and Senior Curator
