Annual Operating Campaign

The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art Annual Campaign ensures the support crucial to sustaining the organization. Serving the community through the many educational, cultural, and fulfilling opportunities requires assistance from a range of resources. To maintain free admission to our museums, we provide a diverse range of programming from tours of rotating exhibitions, to event fundraisers, traditional workshops and virtual art camps for attendants of all ages, and more. Explore the pages of this website for more information on these initiatives.


Please join us in providing our region with access to exceptional art and affordable cultural experiences.
