Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art launches 2019 annual campaign
The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art (SAMA) launched its 2019 annual campaign and set a fundraising goal of $165,995.
Founded in 1976, SAMA has five museums that serve Westmoreland, Somerset, Fayette, Bedford, Blair and Cambria counties. Each museum will have its own fundraising goal.
“The responsibility to engage younger generations at SAMA and through art education is not something we take lightly,” said Executive Director Vanessa Houser. “It is imperative to maintain our facilities, sustain operational costs and consistently arrive at mindful decisions which further creative initiatives.”
Charitable gifts go to support programs for children and senior citizens, the Arts-in-Education program and free access at each of the five museums.
