Lunch a l'Art

SAMA offers Lunch a l’Art programs throughout the year at its Altoona, Bedford, Loretto, and Ligonier Valley facilities. The programs include a luncheon and special presentation or gallery tour with an exhibiting artist or guest lecturer. Lunch a l’Art programs are offered to encourage a greater undeling of various art forms and movements, as well as foster a deeper appreciation for the exhibitions presented by the Museum.

Since 1976
